Filipino Sinigang Na Hipon

panlasangpinoy's picture
Sinigang na Hipon is a Filipino main dish having shrimp as the main ingredient. Fresh Shrimps and vegetables are cooked by boiling in a sour broth. The commonly used souring agent is tamarind. However, other fruits such as guava, tomato, bilimbi (known as kamias), green mango, pineapple, and wild mangosteen (santol) can also be used. Similar to the previous sinigang dishes that we featured (Sinigang na ulo ng Salmon and Pork Sinigang), This variation is eaten with rice and some fish sauce (patis) on the side. I usually cook this dish whenever I feel nostalgic or when the weather is pretty cold. Like today, the temperature is dropping again somewhat signaling for the coming of winter.
