“Sinigang na ulo ng Salmon” is translated as Salmon head cooked in a sour broth of tomatoes and tamarind. Sinigang is the term used to cook meat or seafood by boiling it with a sour base such as tamarind. Other variant bases are available depending on the region where sinigang is cooked. Some use guava while others prefer green mangoes and calamansi. It does not matter as to what fruit is used to make the sour base.
