Here’s a “minutes to prepare, ultra quick to cook” dish submitted to us by one of our friends and followers, Dante.

According to Dante, he used PAMPANO in this pinangat dish because, he wanted to innovate Filipino fish recipes. As much as possible, he wanted to refrain from utilizing Bangus (milkfish) and Tilapia from his dish.
