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.
