Hot and Spicy Daing na Bangus (Marinated Milkfish)

It's almost 4am in my part of the world (Doha, Qatar) and my little rascal Ate Lazie Baby (our Persian Cat) is trying to catch my attention with her antics.  She wants us to go outdoors again and have some walk-time. I also just made an early breakfast and baon consisting of freshly squeezed lemon juice for the husband whose bound to work by 5am.  

It will be another long day ahead of me again.  Household chores are waiting to be done.  I need to catch up on some ZzzZzzZs too as I was only able to fell asleep at about 1am a while back. Now, Ate Lazie is demanding that I turn on the TV.  I am always awed by this feline's addiction to TV shows.  She likes watching birds and small animal as do most cats (national geographic and youtube is always on) .  She also likes watching action packed shows with cars and motorcycles and people running and moving about.  

Anyway, here is my husband's recipe for the marinated milkfish. Unlike others who slice the fish and open it butterfly-style, my husband just sliced them as you see in the picture



Bangus (milk fish) - 2 whole fish (gutted and scales-removed)
Garlic, smashed and chopped - 10 cloves
Iodized salt
Patis (Fish sauce)
Black peppercorns,coursely ground
Chili flakes
Balsamic Vinegar

Cooking Procedure:

1.  Make sure that the fish is clean, gutted, and the scales were removed.  Cut the fish open and slice it into 2 inches thick.  Wash in running water, drain, and pat dry
2.  Rub each sliced fish with garlic, salt and black peppercorns.  Pour the fish sauce and chili flakes on the fish slices and let sit for about an hour.
3. Pour the balsamic vinegar on the fish slices then transfer in a plastic bag. Marinade for at least 24 hours. Keep in the freezer.

4.  Before cooking, make sure that you drain and pat-dry the fish slices
5.   You can either fry or bake them, whichever way you like it :-)

Serve this with Vinegar, garlic, salt, and onion mixture and Sinangag (Fried garlic rice)
