How to make Sinuglaw or Grilled Pork Belly and Tuna Kilawin

Sinuglaw is a very popular appetizer dish in many restaurants in Cebu and Davao, ideal as pulutan. It is a mixture of Grilled Pork Belly or Sinugbang Baboy Liempo cut into small pieces and fresh Tuna with vinegar and vegetables. The name “Sinuglaw” came from the Visayan word Sinugba means Grill and Kinilaw which means means to cook by soaking in vinegar and spices.

Sinuglaw Recipe is a fusion of two different dishes Fish Kinilaw and Pork Sinugba. To the eyes, it is kinilaw ( with fish tuna) topped with grilled pork belly. The contrast of two dishes makes it very explosive. Tangy yet sumptuous, spicy and creamy, savory and moist.

Sinuglaw is a must-try dish when you visit the Philippines or you can just follow this recipe.

    My hubby loves pork belly and tuna, so he would love this. In fact, I’ve loved so many of your recipes that I am going to have to take him to a Filipino restaurant to see if I have been making them correctly!
