Fish Fillet ala Bicol Express

I know this is not a new recipe for you because you've heard about FISH BICOL EXPRESS.  But I'm sure that this recipe is very different to what you usually think.

FISH FILLET ala BICOL EXPRESS is a different recipe from the one you've encounter with other Bicol Express Filipino recipes.


1/4 Meat Bariles, slice slant about vertically

1 cup flour

1/2 cup cassava flour

2 tbsp cornstarch

4 cloves of garlic,chopped

1/2 tbsp ginger

black pepper

3 green siling haba(finger Chili's)


sea salt

2 tbsp oil

1 cup of water

Magic Sarap(optional)

1 egg(batter)


  1. Marinate the fish with salt and pepper for 20 minutes.
  2. After 20 minutes, get a bowl and mix the marinated fish together with the flour, cassava flour and cornstarch.


  1. In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat.
  2. Saute the garlic, ginger and onions and add the mixtures(Prep.2). 
  3. You can sprinkle Magic Sarap for more appetizing taste.
  4. When fish is half-cooked, add the batter egg.
  5. Simmer till cooked.  And mix siling haba.

This is good for 1 serving only.

Eat it.  I can't even pronounced it!  BURP!
