I know most of you already know how to make this delicious dish! I just made this for my son, and i decided to document it just in case someone didn’t know how to make it. 😛

First off, my protein of choice for sinigang is bangus. I love bangus. You can use pork ribs (make sure to soften meat before adding the rest of the ingredients), prawns, lapu-lapu, chicken and even beef ribs. Our dear family friends even use tinapang banugs! Yes! the ones you find in the frozen section of your grocery. 😛 At first I thought it would be weird, but as I continued to eat it, it tasted better after every bite! 😀 Try it out. It’s deeeelish!

Simple and easy Bangus Sinigang at home.

Radish, green Sili, Eggplant, Onion, Tomato, Long Beans and Spinach/Kangkong
Bangus Belly, Hugas Bigas, Sinigang Powder

Place hugas bigas (rice wash, or you can use water) in a pot. Add onions and tomatoes. Bring to a boil and cook until softened. When softened, add sliced radishes and season with salt. Let boil until slightly cooked. (make sure not to over cook it)

Add long beans andGreen chili, and boil for about 2 minutes.

Add Long beans and green chili

*** Mix/Stir gently so you don’t break the fish. 😯

Add Eggplant, Bangus and Sinigang Powder
Gently push everything to one side of the pot. Add the spinach and allow to wilt
Serve with Patis (fish sauce)
Nom...Nom....Nom.... 😀

  1. Pring, You can also rinse the bangus in ginger juice (juice from squeezed grated ginger) to remove the fish smell.
