Recipe: Sinigang na Salmon

I'm going to share with you my favorite food discovery this month: SeaKing Wild Alaskan Keta Salmon! I love salmon. But strangely enough, I never buy it when I'm doing the grocery mostly because I like my fish super fresh and I don't trust a lot of fish sold in the supermarket.

My friend Rowena Lei of Animetric told me about SeaKing Wild Alaskan Keta Salmon. She said it's real wild salmon. Yung tipong tumatalon upriver kind of salmon. This fish isn't farmed at all. Why does that matter? Wild salmon has better good fats so it’s healthier. It's that simple.

So imagine my extreme happiness when SeaKing Wild Alaskan Keta Salmon sent me enough salmon to stuff my freezer full! The first thing I cooked was the salmon chunks. I just lightly salted them then fried them. I like it simple like that so I can judge the freshness, taste, and quality of my meat, fish, and vegetables. When I'm convinced na fresh at masarap talaga siya, that's when I trust the product enough to play with it.  

SeaKing Wild Alaskan Keta Salmon was firm, smelled like the sea, and tasted clean and fresh. Really delicious! I love it! So my next dish was a Pinoy classic and one of my absolute favorites: sinigang! Here's my recipe for sinigang na salmon.


Sinigang na Salmon

2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
2 medium onions, chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
3 native tomatoes, chopped
1 small sachet sinigang na sampaloc mix
500 grams SeaKing salmon steaks
1 medium labanos, sliced
2 bunches kangkong leaves 

Procedure:
1. Heat oil in a saucepan.
2. Sauté onions and garlic until onions are translucent.
3. Add tomatoes and sauté until soft.
4. Add 5 cups water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer.
5. Add SeaKing salmon steaks, labanos, and sinigang mix.
6. Simmer over low heat until fish is cooked, or about 10 to 15 minutes. Fish cooks fast!
7. Season with salt and pepper.
8. Once fish is almost cooked, add kangkong leaves, and cook uncovered for 2 minutes.

Serve steaming hot with rice!

Super easy. When I'm really lazy, I just put all the ingredients (except the kangkong) in a pot, bring to a boil, then down to a simmer for 15 minutes. May sinigang na salmon na ako! The salmon I used pa is really good and ganda ng quality so hindi siya nadudurog. Sarap!


SeaKing Wild Alaskan Keta Salmon comes in four (4) different cuts: Chunks (500g), Belly (500g), Steak (200g), and Slab (200g). Each pack is around P200+ to P300+. Sulit na considering galing pang ibang bansa sila, diba?
