A different twist to cook sinigang na isda is to use a Miso. I usually used a Knorr Sinigang sa Miso pack because I do not like the smell of the miso that was available in the wet market. I am also not sure for the miso that was sold to the wet market.
Note: Talakitok taste so good in Sinigang sa Miso (sour stew).
Nutrition: Good source of iodine (sea white-deep water fish- Talakitok). The Green Mustard (Mustasa) has vitamin A, B, C, Iron and rich in potassium valuable to pregnant woman and nursing mothers.
- 1/2 kilo of White meat Fish (preferably Talakitok Fish)
- 2 pieces of medium sized onions, cut into halves
- tomatoes (optional)
- 4 cloves of garlic, minced
- thumb-sized of ginger, sliced
- 1-2 pieces of Green Chillies (depending on your taste)
- One bundle of Green Mustard (Mustasa) Leaves
- Knorr Sinigang sa Miso Seasoning Smallest Pack(Any Sour Miso seasoning)
- 3 cups of water
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt or to taste
- a pinch of white pepper
- 1/2 cup Jasmin Rice (powdered form)
- Season the fish with salt and pepper then fry. Set aside in paper towel to drain excess oil.
- Saute garlic, onions and ginger. Add the 3 cups of water simmer for five minutes and place the fish.
- Pour the Knorr Sinigang sa Miso Seasoning add the salt and the powdered jasmin rice. Let it simmer for five-ten minutes until the stew is slightly thick.
- Place the Green Mustard, let it cook for a less than a minute (do not over-cooked) then put the green chillies.
Putting some Powdered Jasmin Rice in the Sinigang sa Miso (sour stew) makes the dish so special. It enhances the flavorful dish. Green Mustard leaves is a green leafy vegetable which has a strong flavor best for sea water fish to complement with its fishy smell and taste.
