My wife and I had been enjoying the snow bird lifestyle between US and Philippines after my retirement from USFDA in 2002.

The Simplest Recipe for Milk Fish
My wife and I have the easiest way to have a good meal using bangus. We just baked it and in 1 hour we have a delicious fish dish. The hardest part is to clean the fish but in most fish markets in the Philippines the fish vendors will clean it for you free of charge or gratis et amore.
1-1.5 kg bangus
1 thumb size ginger, sliced thin crosswise
115 ml soya sauce
1 medium onion
2 cloves garlic
4 calamansi, juiced (lemon juice could be used)
1 tomato, diced
salt and pepper to taste
Clean bangus by removing the scales, removing gills and washing the inside. Pat dry with paper towel. Mix tomato, onion and a third of ginger. Salt and pepper to taste. Cut open the front side of the fish and fill with this mixture.
Mix all other ingredients, ginger, soya sauce, and calamansi or lemon juice. Place the bangus on a roasting pan lined with aluminum foil large enough to cover the fish when folded. Pour the soya sauce mixture over the fish. Fold the aluminum foil and seal all ends. Bake at 375F for 60 minutes. Very easy, even a amateur cook like me can do this!
