Milkfish or bangus is cooked in tamarind-based broth with onions, ginger, tomatoes, green chilis and pechay. Sinigang na Bangus is very popular because milkfish is the most common farmed fish in the Philippines. But not all bangus are equal! The most sought after is Dagupan Bangus in the province of Pangasinan.
