I like to have paksiw na bangus early in the morning with a serving of warm white rice and a cup of freshly brewed black coffee. This dish always reminds me on how simple yet satisfying life can be. It nourishes my body while making my taste buds happy. Now I have the energy to start my day.
How to Cook Paksiw na Bangus
This is probably one of the top 10 easiest recipes in this site. There are only 2 major steps in the process. The first is to combine all the ingredients together in a pot. There is a sequence as to which ingredient goes first and where to position it. The next is to boil until fully cooked. This dish should be done in around 15 minutes.
I don’t usually keep leftover fish for more than a day. This dish is an exception. I can cover the dish tightly with a cling wrap and leave it in room temperature for hours. It does not spoil easily. This can also be kept in the fridge for upto 2 days. I usually fry my leftover paksiw na bangus. I like how it resembles the taste of marinated daing na bangus.
