Share the Feast, Not the Fat with Fisher Farms' Gourmet Baked Rellenong Bangus

The Philippines is known for having the longest Christmas season in the world because many Filipinos start decorating for the Yuletide holidays as early as September. Parties and reunions are planned and held almost weekly leading up to Christmas until New Year's Day

What's for sure is that all these get-togethers could only mean one thing -- lots and lots of food! Thus, people look forward to this time of year when we can splurge on the menu and eat as many holiday delicacies as possible. However, those who have been trying to maintain a healthy diet all these months may succumb to indulging here and there. Before they know it, they've already eaten too much and are ending the year with the taste of guilt and a lot of extra pounds.

This holiday season, Fisher Farms Inc., a world-class aquaculture food processor and the largest supplier of farm-raiseed milkfish in the country, is making it possible for Filipinos to indulge without the guilt with its Gourmet Baked Rellenong Bangus. The amazingly delicious product was created by celebrity chef and food expert Reggie Aspiras as a healthy alternative to the fatty dishes often served during Noche Buena and Media Noche parties.

Imagine -- a whole bangus stuffed with a savory filling of fish, sweet potato, bangus belly, shrimp, and other premium and special ingredients that give this traditional local dish a holiday twist! The Gourmet Baked Rellenong Bangus has everything we look for in a yummy relleno without it being fried. This considerably cuts down on the fat content without sacrificing flavor.

During the product launch held at Marco Polo Hotel in Ortigas, model and actress Marina Benipayo, and TV host, actress, dancer, and businesswoman Regine Tolentino, shared how much they love Fisher Farms' Baked Rellenong Bangus. 

Marina admits to always choosing healthy food, like salads, to bring to get-togethers because she believes that one has to have a balance in the foods we eat. So she is happy to discover Fisher Farms' rellenong bangus and describes it as "really good and not heavy on the tummy." Likewise, Regine praises the product for being easy to cook and sees it as a classy, perfect contribution to bring to parties because it's healthy and has a colorful presentation.

We have actually tried Fisher Farms' Baked Rellenong Bangus at home a couple of times already and it has become a favorite, especially of my second son. I believe it has also been more than a year since I've been buying Fisher Farms' Smoked Deboned Milkfish, which my family loves to eat partnered with my ampalaya salad recipe. So I was personally glad to know more about this brand.  

Fisher Farms, the country's leading aquaculture processor and exporter, grows its milkfish in the pristine seawaters of Pangasinan in fish cages, resulting to sweeter, more flavorful, firmer, and cleaner fish. They give only high-protein feeds to the farmed fish to produce high-quality fish meat. Discover their many other products in the frozen section of select supermarkets in Metro Manila and in select provinces around the country.

Fisher Farms' Gourmet Baked Rellenong Bangus comes in three generous sizes: 800 grams, 1.1 kilos, and 1.3 kilos. With bangus this big, it is definitely easy to share the feast without the fat!
