WATCH: How to Make Paksiw Na Bangus

Paksiw is a classic Pinoy dish, and you can do this cooking technique with other meats, too.


This paksiw dish is made with bangus instead of pork, and you can easily do this same recipe with other fish, like galunggong, tulingan, or any other fish that you think would pair well with its vinegar base.
