Sisig is definitely one of the Pinoy’s favorite dish. It is commonly cooked or served as “pulutan” during special occassions. The most common sisig dish is the sizzling pork sisig.
Although this dish is very tasty and delicious, many Filipinos tries to avoid eating it as much as possible. Why? because the main and common ingredient of sisig is pork, it is high in cholesterol.
Luckilly, we can now cook sisig without using any hint of pork. This recipe uses bangus or milkfish that according to some research, is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are associated with decreased blood triglyceride levels, reduced blood pressure, enhanced immune function and an improvement in arthritis symptoms.
So without further ado, here’s the complete healthful bangus sisig recipe brought to us by My Fresha-licious.
