Sinigang Na Isda Sa Kamatis

Sinigang is a popular Filipino food. It is a common food in the Philippines and practically everyone I know can cook sinigang. There are many sinigang variations from pork to beef to fish. My favorite is pork sinigang but from time to time, I would use bangus. This time I used tilapia, another popular fish in my country.

This Sinigang na isda in kamatis is different from the usual sinigang because I didn’t use any souring ingredients like tamarind or kamias. I simply cook the fish in tomatoes and talbos na kamote that I bought really cheap. My daughter has a fever and suspected of having dengue. I was told that Tawa Tawa or talbos ng kamote can help maintain her platelet. So, I have leftover talbos ng kamote that I simply don’t want to waste.
This fish stewed in tomato is very easy to cook and tasty too! Here’s my Sinigang na Isda sa Kamatis, enjoy cooking!
