How to cook Sinaing Na Tulingan
- Remove gills and all internal organs of the fish. Slit both sides of the fish and press against the sides with palms of the hands to flatten the fish and soften its flesh. Wash thoroughly under running water, till water runs clear. Rub fish with salt in and out.
- In a saucepan, arrange the pork fat at the bottom. Put the fish on top side by side. Add the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for about 30 minutes till fish is done.
For the tamarind juice:
Boil 100 grams of tamarind in 1/2 cup water and strain.
