Sinigang na Hipon


  • 1 pound (450g) medium-sized shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1 medium-sized radish, sliced
  • 1 eggplant, sliced into rounds
  • 10-12 pieces string beans (sitaw), cut into 2-inch lengths
  • 3-4 pieces green chili peppers (siling haba)
  • 4-5 cups water
  • 1 packet (about 1.4 ounces or 40g) Sinigang sa Sampalok mix (tamarind soup mix)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation Steps

  1. Boil the Water: In a large pot, bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat.
  2. Add Vegetables: Add the sliced tomato, onion, radish, eggplant, and string beans to the boiling water. Let it simmer for about 5-7 minutes or until the vegetables are slightly tender.
  3. Tamarind Mix: Stir in the Sinigang sa Sampalok mix, making sure it’s well-dissolved. This mix provides the signature tangy flavor of Sinigang.
  4. Shrimp and Chili Peppers: Add the shrimp to the pot and continue simmering for about 3-4 minutes or until they turn pink and opaque. Toss in the green chili peppers to add some heat to the soup.
  5. Seasoning: Season with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning according to your preference for sourness.
  6. Serve: Remove from heat and serve hot. Sinigang na Hipon is traditionally served with steamed rice and fish sauce with calamansi (Filipino lime) as a dipping sauce.
