Sinigang na Hipon (sour soup shrimp)

We went to the loacal market the other day and bought some fresh shrimp so my daughter and I made a sinigang. Sinigang (source of data: wikipedia) is a Philippine dish famous for the variety of ingredients one can use as well as for its taste. Sinigang is typically sour and is most often likened to Thailand's tom yam.Sinigang often incorporates stewed fish, pork, chicken, shrimp, or beef. Sinigang's characteristic taste is attributed to the ingredient that gives its sour taste, not to the meat's flavor.Pork sinigang, the most common variety, is usually prepared with tamarind (which provides the sourness), tomato, leek, taro and onion. Other vegetables cooked in sinigang may include okra, spinach, radish, green pepper and string beans. With ours, we used petchay or bok choi because that was the only available here hehehe but it was still Yummy
