Bangus Bistek Tagalog

Have you heard of bangus or milk fish?  If you're familiar with it, you already know how delicious it tastes when cooked. I've come up with a recipe that I can use the fish to braise with using soy sauce and lemon. This is a perfect viand for those who are not into eating meat. Procedures: 1. Marinate the fish steaks into half of lemon juice and half of soy sauce for about 25 - 30 minutes. Omit the marinade and fry the fish slices in a pan of 3 tablespoon of cooking oil with medium heat. Be careful of the oil splatter, it hurts and it's ugly. Transfer on a plate and let it cool. Set aside. 2. On the same pan, discard some oil and saute onion rings until the color becomes translucent. Set aside on a plate and let it cool. 3. To make the "bistek" sauce, pour over the remaining soy sauce, lemon and water on the same pan and let it boil for about 5 minutes. Add ground pepper. When the sauce is reduced to half, transfer the fried fish steaks on the pan and cook for 5 minutes. Transfer on a serving bowl and garnish with onion rings. Serve hot with plain rice.
