Recipes from the Century Bangus Kitchen

Century Bangus

I was lucky to be one of the invited bloggers to taste the dishes created from Century Bangus.  Now is really a great time for me as I need to lose a lot of weight.  I know that eating fish will be the best way for me to achieve that goal.  Plus, we all know that fish does have a lot of healthy benefits.

I actually saw Century Bangus product line in the supermarket but never really took time to notice them.  Good thing I attended the bloggers’ event or else, I’d be missing a whole lot.  Next time, I will actually look for Century Bangus in the grocery and will buy some for sure.

Century Bangus is the newest addition to Century Canning Corporation’s products.  I’m pretty sure you’re very familiar with Century Tuna.  Now, Century Bangus is their newest baby with a whole range of products that come with it namely:

  • Century Bangus Fillet
  • Century Bangus Chunks
  • Century Bangus Sisig
  • Century Quality Premium Boneless Bangus
  • Century Quality Premium Bangus Belly Unseasoned
  • Century Quality Premium Boneless Bangus Belly Marinated
  • Century Quality Premium Bangus Tocino

Why do those products worth looking into?  Well, it’s because they are healthy, delicious and most importantly, fresh.  Century takes pride in the processing of their bangus.  It was grown and farmed in seawater cages somewhere in Southern Mindanao.  As the fish are harvested, they are brought immediately to Century’s facilities where the fish is processed and packed on the same day.

We are assured that whenever we buy a Century Bangus product, it’s of high quality and fresh.  Plus, do you know that Century’s facilities have even been accredited by the EU and US FDA?  Now, that can definitely give us a peace of mind :)

So you bought a Century Bangus product but you wanted to get more ideas as to how to prepare it.  You’re in luck because I’m going to share with you the recipes of the 3 yummy dishes Chef Apple prepared for us that night.

*** to reduce balsamic vinegar: pour 2 cups balsamic vinegar into a skillet or saucepan. Allow it to simmer with occasional stirring for about 5 minutes until a little syrupy or desired consistency is achieved. Remove from heat to allow it to thicken some more as it cools.

Pan-grill on a skillet brushed lightly with oil until caramelized. Set aside. Whisk together lemon juice, honey, salt, pepper & extra virgin olive oil. Cover & chill until ready to serve.
