Come and let’s numerate Bangus recipes that we know. Hmmm… Inihaw na Bangus (Grilled), Pritong Bangus (Fried), Boneless Bangus, Sinigang na Bangus, Siarsiadong Bangus, Bangus en Tocho, Bangus with Salted Beans. These are some commonly known Pinoy Bangus recipes. And I bet you haven’t heard of NILAGANG BANGUS. I am familiar with Nilagang Baboy and Nilagang Baka but I could not conceive in my mind and even in the palates of my mouth when my officemate shared me this unusual NILAGANG BANGUS with AMPALAYA LEAVES recipe. I don’t want to divulge the savor, taste and experience of this great Bangus recipe because I like my readers to discover. Just make sure you get a real, authentic, fresh Bangus from Bonuan, Dagupan for if not, I can’t assure you can have the best flavor of this dish.
