The milkfish, Chanos chanos, is an important food fish in Southeast Asia. It is the sole living species in the family Chanidae. The fry are collected from rivers and raised in ponds, where they can be fed almost anything and grow very quickly, then are sold either fresh, frozen, canned, or smoked.
The milkfish is also a national symbol of the Philippines, where it is called bangus. This meal is called Daing na Bangus (marinated milkfish in vinegar) and is easy to prepare.
First cut your fish lengthwise along the back, taking great care in not breaking the skin. The place the fish skin side down in a a wide and shallow container. Add vinegar, peppers, garlic, salt and ground pepper, and let marinate in your refrigerator for 24 hours, turning the fish over after the initial 12.
To prepare, drain, and fry with oil in a large skillet for 5 or 6 minutes, or until the fish reaches a golden brown color.
