How to make Dinengdeng:

Dinengdeng is a traditional Ilocano dish. It is also known as “inabraw”. This is a healthy dish. The main ingredients are backyard grown vegetables seasoned with fermented fish or “bagoong” topped with grilled fish.

Dinengdeng is easy to cook and prepare. For most Ilocanos particularly those in the countryside, they source out their ingredients from their own backyard farm. These yields are fresh ingredients . If you would like to try this dish, here is one sample recipe.


2 (8 ounce) fillets milkfish (bangus)

1 onion, chopped

1 tomato, quartered

1 cup water

2 tablespoons shrimp paste (bagoong)

1/2 pound long beans, cut into bite-size pieces

salt and pepper to taste

1/2 pound fresh okra

1/2 pound zucchini, cut into bite-size pieces


1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

2. Grill the milkfish fillets until the flesh flakes easily with a fork, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

3. Combine the grilled fillets, tomato, onion, shrimp paste, and water to the pot; bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Add the long beans and zucchini; stir. Cover the pot and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Stir the okra into the mixture and cook another 5 minutes. Serve hot.
