Sinigang Na Tilapia Recipe
Fish sinigang just got simpler with this tilapia version.
Sinigang is a popular Filipino sour soup and there are different ways to make it. The most popular ingredient is the tamarind or sampaloc but you can amp up the sourness by adding or using tomatoes, green mangoes, guava, or even the regional fruit, the batuan or batwan.
The other most popular version is usually made with pork. There are other meats you can use other than pork! We have a beef sinigang recipe that's fantastic and beefy. However, these recipes need time to get tender. The solution to that is to swap out the main ingredient for another that cooks in minutes rather than in an hour: fish.
You can use any fish you want but we think the humble tilapia fish is a great option for anyone to use. You can use any size you like but just note that the tilapia becomes known as a pla-pla when it reaches a certain size. If you've ever wondered what that large whole fish looks like a tilapia, it probably is but just bigger.
