Milkfish Loaf with Creamy Gravy #SeafoodRecipesWorldwide


1 large milkfish, scaled and gutted
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, minced
2 tablespoons butter, plus more for greasing pan
2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
2 eggs, beaten lightly
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 cup condensed
cream of mushroom soup
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

For the gravy
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup cream
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
nutmeg, salt, and pepper, to taste


1 Preheat oven to 350°F.

2 Boil milkfish in salted water until cooked, about 10 to 15 minutes; let cool. Remove skin and bones; shred flesh into flakes to make a total of 2 cups.

3 In a small frying pan, sauté garlic and onions in butter let cool.

4 In a large bowl, mix flaked milkfish, garlic, onions, and the rest of the ingredients. Pour mixture into a greased 4x8-inch loaf pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until set. Let cool.

5 While baking, make the gravy: In a saucepan, melt butter. Add flour and cook for 30 seconds or until light brown. Add chicken stock gradually while whisking continuously to avoid lumps from forming. Let mixture simmer for 5 minutes.

6 Add cream and mustard and mix well. Season to taste with nutmeg, salt, and pepper.

7 Slice cooled fish loaf and serve with gravy.
