In My Kitchen: Sinigang na Maya Maya Sampalok

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

My second recipe for my Fish and Veggie Weekend is Sinigang na Maya Maya sa Sampalok

Sinigang is a Filipino soup or stew characterized by its sour flavor most often associated with tamarind  osampalok (Source: Sinigang is my personal favorite, be it with pork, shrimp or fish. 

Last Saturday, I decided to use natural ingredients for my Sinigang na Maya Maya. I used fresh sampalok. Sometimes, I use Knorr tamarind soup base.  


1/2 kilo Maya Maya, sliced 
Kangkong (you can add other veggies such a eggplant, raddish)
1/4 kilo Sampalok
1-2 pc fresh Tomato, sliced
1 pc onion, sliced
Sili (pansigang)


Boil the sampalok in 1 1/2 cup water until the shell show cracks. Allow to cool and peel them off  and with a strainer, pour them into a bowl. Gently massage the sampalok meat off the seeds and strain again. In a pot, boil about 2 cups of water together with the onions and tomatoes. Add fish and salt and simmer until fish is cooked. Add kangkong and sili and simmer for  minutes.

Serve hot.
