28 Filipino Soup Recipes

Something Fishy

If you are a seafood lover then the dishes below will be your favourites, featuring fish and other seafood I believe Philippines should have more of this thinking that our country is surrounded by water.

Sinigang na Ulo (Fish Head in Tamarind Broth) 1

Sinigang na Ulo – I know I mentioned sinigang already but since it’s my favourite I will mention it twice and for a fish sinigang this is my favourite, the Fish head sinigang. Basically, it is prepared with a large fish head, typically from snapper, grouper, tuna or salmon, prepared in a tamarind stew with tomatoes, radish and mustard greens.

Pesa (Fish in Miso Soup) 1

Pesa – My aunt who influenced me a lot on loving cooking prepared this on a regular basis when I was young so this takes a special place in my heart. Basically, it’s fish on miso and rice wash soup served with lots of green leafy vegetables.

Linagpang – It’s not just a soup but it is also grilled. Yes, fish is grilled first before placing it in a soup giving it that smoky delicious flavour.

    Thank you for the compilation. Definitely some I’ll be trying. The bile juices in pinapaitan will possibly be given a miss an I’ll possibly use coffee to bitterise that. I was interested to see you use the rice wash water to make Pesa. Is it used in other Philippine recipes? It always seemed a waste of a good starch liquid to just chuck it away( or my wife, who is Thai, will wash her face with it)

    I love clear soups, so nice and refreshing unlike the very thick, rich and creamy western ones.
