Sinigang na Isda

After the holidays, I am craving for something different, something without pork, beef or chicken. *big grin*

So here's the answer for my craving! *wink*

Sinigang na Isda
(Fish in Sour Soup)



1 kl Maya-Maya fish
4 medium tomatoes, cut into halves
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 medium onion, sliced
10 pcs pechay leaves
4 pcs small eggplant
6 pcs small okra
tamarind base mix (any souring agent)
10 cups rice washing (hugas bigas) or water

here's how

On a pot, bring rice washing, garlic, onion and tomatoes to a boil.
Lower down the heat before adding the eggplant and okra.
Season with salt and tamarind base mix.
Simmer for about 5 minutes.
Add the fish and simmer for another 15 minutes or until the fish is cooked.
Add the pechay leaves. Turn off heat.
Serve hot!


Tips! Tips! Tips!

* You can use other kinds of fish which has talakitok, tilapia, bangus (milkfish) or even tuna.
* Other vegetables can also be added. Like Gabi (taro), sigarillas (kalamismis here in Batangas), sitaw (long beans) and labanos (raddish)
