That sounds soooo good. I would love a some adobong bangus -- milkfish marinated in soy sauce, vinegar, ginger, and garlic, then fried. The best part is that you can get it pre-marinated, so all you have to do is fry it up and serve it over rice with tomatoes and boiled eggs. Oh, and you can't be squeamish about eating the head. The cheeks of the fish really are the best part.
