Sinigang na Salmon Belly sa Kamias with flavorful fish belly and vegetables in a sour soup is the perfect cold weather comfort food. Delicious served with steamed rice or enjoyed on its own!
You’ll find quite a few sinigang recipes on the blog but although they’re all delicious, I have to say sinigang na salmon belly sa kamias is the best of the lot! I can never refuse a piping hot bowl of sinigang in any form but this salmon version is what I cook most often at home.
I just love, love, love the melt-in-your-mouth tenderness of the salmon fat and the deep flavor it lends to the broth.
And it’s healthier to boot! If you’re looking for a great alternative to beef or pork in your next pot of sour soup, salmon is a good source of high-quality protein and heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
Kamias is one of the souring agents commonly used in sinigang and it does provide a refreshing change from the ubiquitous tamarind pods. The medley of vegetables in this recipe are what I like to add in m sinigang but feel free to swap with pechay, kangkong, spinach or whatever variety you have on hand.
Give this sinigang na salmon belly sa kamias a try for dinner tonight. Chock-full of succulent salmon belly strips and tender-crisp vegetables, it’s the perfect cold weather comfort food!
