Bangus with Tausi, Milkfish with Salted Black Beans

Bangus with Tausi, Milkfish with Salted Black Beans. This is one of the more popular Pinoy cooking method of milkfish. Fried slices of milkfish are cooked with ginger, onion, tomato and with fermented/salted black beans. Newly fried milkfish or left over fish can be used for this recipe. The black beans should be rinsed to rid of some of the saltines. Kinchay or Chinese parsley is normally use instead of spring onion. But I could not find kinchay today at my favourite supermarket so I have to settle for spring onion, if both are available both then use both. The bangus I used is frozen, I bought it from the Asian store near my place. Here is the recipe of my version of Bangus with Tausi, Milkfish with Salted Black Beans.
