Description

Philippines is no different that is why we have this dish called Sinigang na Ulo, basically it’s a fish head cooked in a tamarind based broth. Any fish head can be used but usually we use larger types of fish so you get lots of meat from it.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 large Hapuka heads (or any large fish)
  • 1 packet Tamarind Mix (Sinigang Mix)
  • 3 large tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 large red onion, chopped
  • 1 bunch mustard greens
  • fish sauce
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 litre water

Instructions

  1. In a pot onions and tomatoes then pour water. Bring to a boil.
  2. Once boiling add fish and tamarind mix, simmer for 5-10 minutes (or until cooked). If the fish head is too large you might need to cook each head individually and increase the time.
  3. Add mustard greens then simmer for 2 more minutes.
  4. Season with Fish sauce and freshly ground black pepper
