1 small carrot, diced
1 small can green peas
1 box small raisins
salt and pepper to taste


5 pieces calamansi (lemon juice can be substituted)

Cooking the Rellenong Bangus


Clean the bangus accordingly removing the internal organs such as the intestine
Using the handle of the knife gently tap the bangus to separate the meat from the skin of the fish
Remove the spine spine by snapping off the bone at the base of the tail and head. Use a long spoon to scrape all the meat from the skin. Don't forget to remove the bones and flake the meet.


Marinate the skin and the head in soy sauce, pepper and calamansi ( 3 pieces). Set aside.


Place the milkfish meat in a pot and boil in 1 cup of water, until cooked about 5 minutes.
Sauté the garlic and onions until slightly brown then add the tomatoes and carrots until tender

Beat the egg and add to the mixture. Blend well.
Stuff the mixture inside the bangus skin and head. Sew the cavity if needed.
