How to cook Sinigang na Hipon
It’s been a rainy couple of days and it’s sooo cold! The first day, we were having fun and did a movie marathon for Halloween. But now, one of the kids is not feeling well, my ear ache is back, and the hubby’s back pain is back with a vengeance. Everyone is on edge. Needless to say, any kind of sinigang is a welcome dish today.
Since it’s a #Fridayfast and #nomeatfriday, I decided to share this Sinigang na Hipon Recipe (Shrimp Sinigang Recipe) today. The shrimp makes it extra special!
Nowadays, sinigang is very easy to cook with sinigang mix. When I was a kid, we had to use the real tamarind and we have this giant tamarind in our backyard. My mom would ask me to climb it to get the mature tamarind fruits, and we also use the very young tamarind leaves for the soup. It’s not really different from this Shrimp Sinigang Recipe, except that the first step is to boil the tamarind and mash it after to remove the seeds. The remaining fruit concentrate is then used as the souring agent.
