Pinamalhan Na Bangus is a Filipino dish prepared with milkfish cooked in vinegar and a little bit of soy sauce with aromatics like ginger, garlic, chillies and onions.


  • 2 pcs milkfish, cleaned and cut into 1 1/2-inch sections
  • 3/4 cup cane vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 thumb-sized ginger, thinly sliced
  • 3 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 whole garlic, pounded
  • 3 pcs green chillies
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp black peppercorns
  • salt


  1. Place all ingredients apart from the olive oil in a pot. Layer first the garlic, shallots and ginger in the bottom then milkfish on top. Pour vinegar and soy sauce then sprinkle black peppercorns on top.
  2. Place pot on high heat, cover then bring to a rapid boil. Simmer in medium high heat then cook until almost dry but still left with a bit of sauce, this will take around 15 minutes.
  3. Drizzle olive oil on top then serve.
