Salmon Belly Sinigang Recipe
Switch up your favorite sinigang recipe and throw in some soft salmon belly into the mix!
This seafood sinigang recipe is a must-try, especially if you love¬†salmon. That's because this recipe takes your usual sinigang na hipon recipe and swaps out the shrimp for salmon. But that's not all that's different with this sinigang recipe.¬†
How do you make¬†salmon belly sinigang?¬†
Since¬†we're cooking salmon belly in¬†a broth, the chances of the sinigang becoming too¬†oily from the salmon are high.¬†That's because the salmon is a naturally oily fish. It's loaded with Omega 3 fats and while that's a great quality, it can also leach into the soup, making it too fishy to sip.¬†
This is where the¬†changes to¬†your¬†typical sinigang¬†are made. To help combat the fishy flavor that may be overpowering in a typical salmon¬†sinigang, some garlic and ginger are added to the¬†soup to minimize this. It's the same thing you do when making¬†any soup that has seafood.¬† ¬†
With this little tweak to this¬†soupy recipe, this salmon belly simmered slowly in sinigang turns into soft, melt-in-your-mouth bites.¬†
