Sinigang sa Miso Salmon Belly

Sinigang sa Miso Salmon Belly

If I have to live the rest of my life eating only a single type of food, I would undoubtedly pick Sinigang! This Filipino food is my favorite for all times. It reminds me of rainy days where my family would be together for dinner, sick days when the aroma alone of the Sinigang would rouse me from my bed, and bad-days-turned-to-good-ones because of this dish. I just can’t stress it enough – sinigang is my Kryptonite.

I’ll let you in a little secret – we had this meal for breakfast, lunch, dinner and breakfast the next day. I could have eaten it again for lunch the next day if there’s still some left. For this particular recipe, we used Salmon Belly and a few more vegetables. We also added some tablespoons of miso, giving our Sinigang that earthy and savory taste – suiting the sour broth perfectly.

      We personally experienced shopping on a foreign market and we don’t know how some of the ingredients are translated and it’s a challenge so we decided to put a glossary. Glad to be of help! Thanks for dropping by our blog! 🙂
