Sinigang is a sour soup dish popular in the Philippines. It is usually cooked in pork meat and seafood along with veggies like water spinach, eggplants, string beans, gabi or taro corms and okra. In this dish, we are going to introduce to you another variant in preparing this hearty sinigang, it is the Sinigang na Isda at Sigarilyas Recipe.

Milkfish or locally known as “bangus” is the most frequently used in cooking fish sinigang, though you may also opt to use some other fish such as talakitok, dalagang-bukid and maya-maya or any other meaty fish will do.

    I just love seeing/reading about all these different recipes. I would love to try this but I’m not sure I would be able to find some of the ingredients. I guess I could always skip a few but I’m sure it won’t be close to the same then.
