Paboritong Sinigang na Bangus sa Miso

Paboritong Sinigang na Bangus sa Miso

A typical Filipino dish that soothes the mouth and stomach of the Filipino people craving for soup blended with sour taste of tamarind juice and tomatoes.

The perfect taste(that my family truly loved) blended with miso ingredient enriched the taste of yummy milk fish together with our very own pechay tagalog or mustasa.

I remember during childhood w/ my siblings, our Sunday is "uniformedly" a "Miso Day"! Every after mass which end @ 9am, my father will cook this "ulam" preparation for our Sunday lunch.
Everybody's excited for lunch!

Of course the best part which is "ulo ng bangus" was reserved for Tatay, and the remaining parts..una unahan nalang! That is the scenario before.

But now, wet market offers whats' best and what is in and what people need! They are selling Bangus parts according to what part you like (of course, the best part ng bangus...the best price din.)

Two decades after, many changes happened, life changes.. but the "Sinigang na Bangus sa Miso" habit doesn't change.

After my marriage, I remember, the first ulam I asked to my brother how to cook is "Sinigang na Bangus sa Miso"!

Same ingredients, same procedure, same steps!
Success! "a Man's heart is really through his stomach" and it's really proven with this "Sinigang na Bangus sa Miso" recipe!
