But tuna can also be a good substitute. 😉 Although some use bangus (milkfish) for this recipe, I would rather not. I do like bangus, mind you, only it has too many fishbones, which Armin hates (coz he is not accustomed to eating fish that much) and difficult to get hold of one here in Germany. So unless it is boneless bangus, where all the bones are removed, I would stick to tanigue or tuna.

We usually marinate it in soy sauce with kalamansi  (calamansi) juice, our local lemon. And later use the marinade to make a bit of sauce. Onion rings add a taste of sweetness that contradicts the saltiness of the soy sauce making a perfect balance of taste. Personally, I like the onions to be a little raw so I do not cook it too long or it will get limp.
