Sinigang na Bangus sa Strawberry

Siningang na Bangus sa Strawberry
Sinigang na Bangus sa Strawberry. Want some fruity twist to your sinigang na bangus? today I want to share a unique sinigang dish soured with strawberry. This is not new some restaurant and hotels in Baguio City have it as must have dish on their menu. There are several bloggers who have made some post about it but I cannot find anything using bangus. Most are pork sinigang with strawberry. In the tradition of using all kinds of sour fruits in sinigang na bangus, I thought strawberry would be best with bangus instead of pork, this is based on my numerous post of siningan na bagus using fruits (Sinigan na Bangus sa Sampalok. Sinigang na Bangus sa Santol, Sinigang na Bangus sa Bayabas).

  Strawberry Sinigang 

 Now it’s time to cook it, first I manage to buy some good bangus from the Asian Store near my place, they did have some okra, winged beans and kangkong as well so it was my lucky day I have all the basic ingredients oh, I almost forgot sampalok sinigang mix, yes it is still needed I don’t think the strawberry alone cannot provide enough sourness for a good sinigang. Off to the supermarket for a pack of strawberry, guess what? strawberry is not in season here and its extraordinary expensive, no time to back out I have bought already the other ingredients besides it is already programed in my mind. Cooking the dish is basically similar to the usual sinigang. First boil the tomato, onion before adding the other ingredients, now here is the strawberry part. Divide the strawberry into equal parts, the first half is boiled together with the tomato and onion and the other half is added last when it’s time to add the long green chili. The dish came out great it was a hit, if you like Siningang na Bangus sa Bayabas then you will definitely love this, taste wise is somewhat the same but with the aroma of fruity strawberry. If you happen to be going up to Baguio this summer why not grab some strawberry on your way back and have a try. Here is the recipe of my Sinigang na Bangus sa Strawberry.
