Sinigang na Bangus

This is truly one of the comforting soupy dish I love to eat when the weather is cold.


1 big bangus cleaned, scales and gills remove and sliced

1 cup of kangkong leaves and stalks

1 labanos or white radish peeled and sliced

2 siling haba (chili fingers)

1 onion qurtered

2 tomatoes quartered

1 cup of sampalok or tamarind or kamias


about one liter of water


In a casserole pour your water and add your onion, tomatoes and tamarind or kamias.  Cover and let this boil. After the first boil, get all the tamarind or kamias and press them in a bowl.  You can add some water from your casserole to help you in pressing the juice out.  Strain this and put back on the boiling pot.  Put your fish, vegetables and siling haba.  Cover and lower the fire.  Let it simmer for another ten minutes.  Add some salt to taste.
