Rellenong Bangus is a delicious dish. The flavors are amazing. However, making it requires an extreme amount of patience.

Confused but delighted are two adjectives I can use to describe the experience of my taste buds the first time I ate rellenong bangus.

When I announced that I will try to make rellenong bangus, my father gave me this annoying grin that was followed by a warning. He, however, accompanied me to the market saying his “suki” can help me.

Indeed, one of his suki amazed me. He used his ruler-like metal to separate the flesh from the skin with finesse. He did it like sliding a hot knife in butter.

  1. Boil the flesh of the bangus and let it cool.
  2. Then, crush the flesh using your hands. This will give you a chance to feel and remove the bones. Set aside.
  3. In a pan, saute garlic, onion, carrots, and potatoes.
  4. Put into low heat and add the ground pork. Continue to mix until cooked.
  5. Remove from fire and let it cool for a few minutes.

  8. Carefully put the mixture inside the bangus skin.
  9. Coat with chicken breading
  10. Deep fry until the skin becomes crispy.
