Pansit Tinapa Bihon

Pansit Tinapa Bihon
Pansit Tinapa Bihon. This pansit version was inspired from our traditional Pansit Palabok and Pansit Malabon. Instead of using pork, chicken and seafood used on our regular pansit, Tinapa Bihon as the name suggest used only tinapa flakes as the main “sahog” ingredients.

Pansit Bihon with Tinapa

For the recipe I used tinapang Salinas but you may use any type of tinapa or Pinoy smoked fish variety. I also used annatto for coloring to make my Pansit Tinapa Bihon more appealing, but it is an option, you may omit the annatto ingredient if it is not available in your location.

Pansit Tinapa Bihon Recipe

I have tweaked the traditional cooking of Pancit Gisado by stir frying some of the vegetables then added on the final stage of cooking. Reserved some of the tinapa flakes for garnishing.

Here is the recipe of my Pansit Tinapa Bihon, try it.


1/2 kilo bihon noodles
1/2 kilo tinapang Salinas or any other smoked fish
1 medium size carrot, cut into thin strips
1 small bunch of green beans, trimmed, sliced diagonally into thin slices
1/4 small size cabbage, shredded
1 small sized green bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1 small sized red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1 small sized kinchay, chopped
2 tbsp. patis, fish sauce
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 head garlic, finely chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup annatto in water
1/2 tsp. powdered black pepper
cooking oil

Cooking procedure:
