Bangus Kabayaki at Yoshinoya

Labels:

Bangus A.K.A. (Also Known As) milkfish A.K.A. my favorite fish. Unagi A.K.A. eel A.K.A. my favorite Japanese food. Bangus Kabayaki A.K.A. bangus with unagi sauce A.K.A. my recent favorite affordable Japanese seafood dish. I'm glad sister company Yoshinoya Philippines and Century Canning Corp. came up with this new Bangus Kabayaki product which uses 2 of my favorite dishes.



The bangus used in the Bangus Kabayaki is grown and farmed inside seawater cages at the farm of Century in Southern Mindanao. Since it is breed on seawater, it will not have that muddy taste. And since the bangus are able to roam around a larger space, they tend to have more meat. Upon harvesting, the bangus are processed and packed within the same day.


Bangus Kabayaki - P140

The Bangus Kabayaki is prepared by lightly breading the bangus fillet that came from Century. It's deep fried, drizzled with that irresistible Kabayaki sauce and served with beansprouts and rice. The dish is outstanding. It looks a lot like those Unagi dishes that you find in restaurants or at groceries in Hong Kong where you place it in the microwave oven to heat. Given the sauce, the taste is a lot similar even with the bangus as the meat. They also make sure you get a large portion of the belly to get that Unagi texture. Make sure you be careful of the belly part though. They weren't able to remove the bone of the fin attached to the skin of the bangus. If you know your bangus, you know what I'm talking about.

Sad to say this is only offered only this Lenten season. But instead of sulking, I'm going to make the most out of it or should I say eat the most out of it.

For my fellow bangus fans here are some recipes you want to try out using Century's Premium Boneless Bangus Marinated available at your local supermarkets. I had the privilege to try out the recipes. Each dish was a winner!




Century Bangus Salad with Caramelized Pear and Walnuts

3 tablespoons reduced balsamic vinegar

*To reduce balsamic vinegar: Pour 2 cups balsamic vinegar into a skillet or saucepan. Allow it to simmer with occasional stirring for about 5 minutes until a little syrupy or desired consistency is achieved. Remove from heat to allow it to thicken some more as it cools.

Heat cooking oil in a large pan and fry Century Bangus until golden. Spoon out bangus meat from the skin and set aside. Sprinkle sugar on pears. Pan-grill on a skillet brushed lightly with oil until caramelized. Set aside. Whisk together lemon juice, honey, salt, pepper & extra virgin olive oil. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
