Cooking with my Air Fryer | Cheesy Baked Bangus.

Just like chicken and tofu, bangus (or milkfish) is also a staple in this household. Whether it's sinigang, bistek, daing, or tinapa, there just has to be a bangus dish in our meal plan at least once or twice a week. And why not? Aside from its versatility, bangus is healthy, flavorful, and definitely more affordable than pork or beef.

Today, I tried to be more adventurous with bangus, instead of the usual air fried tinapa or daing. I baked it, and topped it with cream and lots and lots of cheese. It was a hit with my son, who almost finished the entire bangus in one sitting!

Cheesy Baked Bangus

500 grams boneless bangus
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup all-purpose cream
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 cup melting cheese

For the toppings:
1/2 cup melting cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1 to 2 Tbsp parmesan cheese

If you're out of mozzarella, you can use cheddar cheese instead.

1. Preheat the air fryer at 190° Celsius.
2. Season bangus with salt, pepper, and paprika.
3. Prepare the cream mixture by mixing the mayonnaise, all-purpose cream, garlic powder, pepper, sugar, and melting cheese in a small bowl. 
4. Place the bangus skin side down in a greased baking tray.
5. Spread the cream mixture on top of the bangus. (Mixture is good for two pieces of bangus.)
6. Top with different cheeses.
7. Set your air fryer to Bake mode and bake at 180° C for 20-25 minutes or until the top is golden.
