Bangus Siomai (Milkfish Siomai)

My husband usually makes rellenong bangus (stuffed milkfish) you can see his Baked rellenong bangus by clicking this link.  It's only then that I can make dim sum (siomai or lumpia) out of bangus (milkfish).

I find it difficult, laborious, and annoying to remove small fish bones from milkfish that is the reason why I don't make rellenong bangus (stuffed milkfish),  so when my husband makes rellenong bangus I take advantage of the opportunity for him to make for fish flakes so I can use for other recipes.  Good thing that my husband has big cravings that sometimes drive him to do the extra mile, like removing even the smallest bones out of fish meat :-)

Well, if you're like me who hates de-boning fish, you can make use of other fishes like, salmon, tilapia, or any other fish type. I, personally, prefers bangus but I love to try other fish types like salmon or tilapia to make dim sum.
