Sinigang na Lapu lapu sa Miso

Sinigang na Lapu lapu sa Miso

Sinigang na Lapu lapu sa miso is a Filipino sinigang version that makes use of grouper fish. Just like any other sinigang dishes, this is simple and easy to cook. The outcome is a great tasting dish that will test your self control in terms of having more rice than your usual consumption.

I made this dish using the traditional way of cooking sinigang sa sampaloc. This requires unripe tamarind to be boiled for a long time until all the juices from it are extracted. Manually squeezing the juice out of the boiled tamarind also helps.

We also have a similar dish that makes use of kamias or bilimbi. It is called sinigang na isda sa kamias.

How to cook Sinigang na Lapu lapu sa Miso

As I’ve mentioned, this dish is cooked using the traditional way. Prepare the tamarind by boiling water in a pot. Put the tamarind in boiling water and boil until it becomes soft. This can take between 30 to 50 minutes. Extract all the juices from the tamarind and filter using a sieve.

Boil the liquid in a clean pot and add the onion, tomato, and miso. You will have to cook these until the onion and tomato gets really soft. Add the fish along with the radish, okra, and peppers. Cook until the fish is done. Season with some fish sauce and then add the mustard leaves last.

This is best served hot along with a cup of white rice.
