Pinangat na Bangus

Pinangat na Bangus, also called Pangat na Bangus is a traditional dish in the Philippines where fish is stewed in water and souring ingredients. 

Pinangat na Bangus is easy to prepare and very healthy. Pinangat na Bangus is similar to paksiw na bangus and sinigang na bangus but unlike sinigang, pinangat does not have much soup and with paksiw, hardly any soup.

There are many variations of cooking pinangat na isda from different provinces in the Philippines and this one with ampalaya and talong is my favorite. At first, I was hesitant to add ampalaya and talong to this pinangat dish but I turned out so delicious!

Cooking pinangat is pretty straight forward. Another Filipino fish dish that is so simple and so easy to make. There is no particular fish that should be used for this dish but I would suggest using white fish like bangus, sapsap, pompano, hiwas or tilapia.
