5 Use Sinigang Mix To Season Salmon

Sinigang mix can be fancy, too! You can sprinkle it on your salmon before baking it. As with all acid components added to fish, it can really add a layer of fresh flavors. 

6 Make It Into A Glaze

Looking for a new way to flavor chicken wings? You can make an easy sinigang glaze. Dissolve a 20-gram pack of sinigang mix into a cup of water, add ¼ cup of sugar, season to taste, and reduce your mixture. You’ll get a delicious, tangy-sweet sauce that can coat those wings perfectly.

There are several ways you can go about this. The easiest way: saute garlic and onions, add cooked rice, and sprinkle over sinigang mix. Mix it until the color has evened and the rice is nice and dry. Another way is to incorporate vegetables for a full sinigang experience.
