Bangus Sardines in Tomato Sauce

Homemade Bangus Sardines


The start of Dubai summer has been hard for V and I. We’ve been having the flu almost every other week and have been a regular at V’s pediatrician.

V was ordered to rest for a week because aside from the usual cough and colds he was also starting to have sore eyes. C has been reminding me to try and not cuddle V much or kiss him since it might make me sick as well. It’s impossible for me to stay away from my sick child who needs all the cuddle and kisses to make him feel better. He’s feeling better now and enjoying school while I’m still coughing for almost a week now.

Both V and I crave for fish meals when the flu decides to visit and this Bangus Tomato Sardines hit the right spot to make us feel better.

I got this recipe from Ate Agnes who knows that I can eat fish all week (she’s picky with her fish).


Bangus Sardines in Tomato Sauce

1.5 kilos of Bangus (MilkFish)
2 Carrots, sliced thinly
1/2 cup Olive Oil
8 Ripe Tomatoes, chopped
1 tbsp Garlic, minced
1 Bay Leaf
6 Peppercorns
1/2 cup Water
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp Sugar
2 Chilli (I didn’t use any since V is not fond of spicy food)


Clean Bangus, scales off and cut to serving pieces.

Mix all the ingredients except for Carrots, Tomatoes, and Fish. Place this on your pot then lay chopped Tomatoes, Fish and finally top off with sliced Carrots.

Slow cook for an hour and thirty minutes.

Serve with steamed rice.
