Prawn Sinigang with Coconut Milk

 

It’s time to make prawn sinigang! Sinigang is a typical Filipino sour soup dish, it’s one of many dishes that really define and represent the Pinoy cuisine. It’s traditionally tamarind-based with good quality vegetables like aubergine, string beans and water spinach, history says sinigang is related to Malaysia’s singgang recipe, that i don’t know much about. This is a version with a twist of coconut milk to add extra thickness to the soup. I like using king prawns but you can also use beef, pork and fish. King prawns on the other hand blends really well with coconut milk. Sinigang is usually served as main dish with rice or to have the soup without the rice is absolutely fine.
