Grilled Sarangani Tuna Panga @ Home

After an awesome Gensan Fish Port tour by Go Sarangani Travel, we were lucky enough to score Grade A Tuna Belly and tuna panga. The guys were hesitant to sell it to us at first, but our awesome tour guide Michelle, used her natural charm and we were able to purchase several pieces! 😛

Here are a few cooking tips I learned while visiting Sarangani. I love tuna panga and belly, but for some reason it tastes different when I cook it in Manila; so I asked Manong Fred to show me. Here are some of the photos for the Grilled Tuna Panga @ Home

Fresh Tuna Panga (Jaw)
Vinegar, Calamansi, Salt, Pepper and Garlic
Season tuna with all the ingredients and allow to marinate for at least 30 mins
Basting Sauce- Dark Soy, Oil, Black Pepper.
Just needed to take a photo of our Dill Garden on steroids! They're so FAT!
Grill panga skin side down first and make sure the coals are extremely red and HOT

Remember to baste as you cook.
Flip over making sure NOT to overcook. Cook the skin side longer so the top side stays moist
Juicylicious!!!! Soooo good!

Sarangani is such an awesome place to visit. Every time I NEED to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and need to take a breather, Sarangani is the place for me. All the fresh air, awesome food and relaxed pace……. priceless!!

  1. A first for me to have tuna that fresh!
    It tastes so different without the “freezer” taste.
    Any fresh fish cooked from such a state would taste awesome, and then pair it with how you guys season/marinate it?
    Bring on the yummy, grilled food, I say! 🙂
