Sinigang na Samaral

Sinigang na Samaral
Sinigang na Samaral. In Tagalog Region it is called Samaral, in the Ilocos it is called malaga, in the Visayas it is danggit and in Mindanao kitong. Whatever you are in the Philippines the samaral or rabbit fish is one of the best fish in Pinoy cuisine. The fresh fish is best cooked as soup dish, and cooking sinigang style is what I made for these 3 pieces of medium sized samaral about a kilo I bought at Farmers Market in Cubao when I was on leave. There is no specific cooking method with fish sinigang, as long as you have the right vegetable ingredients and prepared souring ingredients then there is no question that your fish sinigang would not come out greate. The only thing to remember is samaral has disgusting innards, removing the guts would require a lot of cleaning and care not to the cut open the bile sack, if cleaning is not properly done you will end up with a bitter soup. As I mentioned there is no special method of cooking sinigang, today's sinigang is basically the same with my previous fish sinigang dishes but for the benefit of those who are learning to cook here is the recipe of my Sinigang na Samaral.
