How to make bangus sisig. This Sisig Bangus Recipe is very simple and can be made in under 10 minutes.

Hey everyone! It’s April from Relax Lang Mom here with another simple recipe for you. You know cooking out here on the island can be challenging without access to all the ingredients we read about online. But we make do with what we’ve got – and sometimes that leads to creative discoveries!

A friend recently came to visit from Dagupan, which is known for its delicious tinapa (smoked bangus). She brought me back so much tinapa that I had to figure out different ways to use it up before it went bad. So I figured I can make Tinapa Spaghetti, maybe lumpiang bangus, and in a moment of inspiration, this Tinapang Bangus Sisig Recipe.

Pork Sisig is such a popular dish here in the Philippines, but the pork version isn’t always the healthiest option. So the idea was to to create a lighter, seafood-based alternative using the tinapa. The smoky flavor of the smoked bangus really shines through in this recipe. Plus it only takes about 10 minutes to throw together and makes for a quick, delicious meal.
