Kalderetang Bangus

Kalderetang Bangus
Kalderetang Bangus is one of the 101 ways on how to cook bangus. To make our cooking life easier I used the usual kaldereta mix. The only hard part is frying the milkfish, I have to warn everyone when frying milkfish expect a lot of oil splashes. The best method is fry the fish in a non stick frying pan with generous amount of oil and a clear glass cover, so that the fish can be viewed with out removing the cover. Once the its ready to flip the fish or done just remove the frying pan from heat let cool down a few minutes before flipping or removing the fish. Instead of the usual potato I used kamote. I also used generous amount of cheese, I know most Pinoy loves cheesy sauce. Here is the recipe of my version of Kalderetang Bangus.


1 big size milkfish, about half kilo, sliced.
1 large size sweet potato, sliced
1 packet kaldereta mix
1 medium size green or red bell pepper, julienne
1/2 tsp. red chili flakes
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/4 head garlic, chopped
1 small size onion chopped
1-2 pcs. bay leaf
salt and pepper
cooking oil

Kalderetang Bangus - Cooking Procedure

Cooking procedure:

Dash sliced milkfish with salt and pepper, let stand for 5 to 10 minutes. Heat generous amount of cooking oil in a non stick frying pan. Fry the sweet potato in batches for 2 to 3 minutes each side, keep aside. Using the same pan fry the milkfish in batches for 5 to 8 minutes each side or until color change to golden brown, keep aside. Using a separate pan sauté garlic and onion until fragrant. Add in the kaderata mix diluted in 2 to 2 1/2 cups of water, chili flakes and grated cheese, stirring continuously bring to a boil and simmer for 1 to 2 minutes. Add in the fried milkfish and continue to simmer for 1 to 2 minutes. Correct saltiness if required. Add in the fried sweet potato and bell pepper cook for another minute. Serve with a lot of rice.
