Bangus with banana heart

This is such a home dish favorite for Visayans. 
Easy to prepare sour fish soup!

Peel a layer of banana heart until the tender part remains. 
Slice the young portion into serving size (Hint: as big as your slices of milkfish). 
Slice milkfish (bangus) into serving sizes and sprinkle with salt. Set aside.
In a soup casserole, put water (Hint: 1 slice of fish, 1 cup of water), tomatoes, onions and halved batuan.
Let boil and mash the batuan to bring out the sourness. Add the bangus or milkfish. 
Let the fish cook through for 5 to 8 minutes and adjust the taste with salt.
Let boil again and add the banana heart.  
Let the banana heart cook fro about 2-3 minutes.
Serve with rice.


The white soup can be attributed to the batuan and the banana heart.
