Pinaksiw na Bilong Bilong
Been a while I had this pinaksiw na Bilong Bilong (moon fish) so when I saw this fish at a local Seafood City grocery store in Vallejo, Ca I bought me some right away even it's kinda pricey ($5.99 a lb)
1 1/2 lb Bilong Bilong 1/2 cup Datu Puti Vinegar 6 garlic cloves, sliced thin 2 tbsp cooking oil
salt and ground pepper to taste
Clean fish and pat dry. Place fish in a deep pan. Add salt, ground pepper, garlic cloves and vinegar and simmer in low heat for 5 minutes or the juice starts to reduce. This kind of fish is so thin that it does not take that long to cook..
Add the cooking oil. Simmer for few more minutes, Remove from heat and serve.
