As hubby is recuperating he seems to be requesting a lot of our native Filipino dishes like this Sinigang sa Bayabas, using kingfish this time, the key is for you to add a piece of pounded ginger and lemon grass if you have.. Let’s prepare our ingredients.
2 pieces Kingfish fillets
6 pieces guavas
1 small onion (sliced)
2 pieces long green peppers
2 ripe tomatoes (sliced)
1 tsp.black peppercorn
4-5 cups rice washing or filtered water
2 Tbsp. fish sauce (amount reduced to 1 Tbsp or only 1 tsp for people on low sodium diet)
Spinach or Kangkong, a bundle
few pieces green beans (trimmed)
thumb-sized pounded ginger and few stalks of lemon grass if you have
1.Pour the rice washings in a deep pot and bring to a boil, add in the sliced guavas, tomatoes, onion and whole peppercorns. Let it boil for 15 minutes until the guavas are soften.
2. Use the potato masher to mash the guavas, you may pour the mixture in a colander and mash with the back of the spoon then add to the broth, add in the fish sauce and the pounded thumb-sized ginger and add the kingfish and cook for 20 minutes if very thick but if you used milkfish, cook only for 5-10 minutes without the ginger.
3. Add the okra, green beans and green pepper or Jalapeño for 5 minutes. Add the spinach or kangkong on top, cover and turn off the heat. Let the spinach get steamed inside the pot for 5 minutes.
4. Serve immediately while piping hot with steamed brown rice.
