Shrimp Sour Soup – Sinigang na Hipon

Shrimp Sour Soup – Sinigang na Hipon

Shrimp Sour SoupLast month during my visit to my daughter and her family in Georgia there was an epic snowstorm in the East Coast.   My grandson, Devon, requested I make him some “Sinigang”.  I was surprised that he even knew what it was, but it seems that one of their friends makes it.  Of course I said yes, after all that’s what Nanas do, cook for the grandkids!  This Shrimp Sour Soup is the perfect comfort food for cold rainy (or snowy) days!

This was one of my favorite childhood dishes and I was happy to find out that my grandchildren love it too.  Like many Filipino dishes this soup is very easy to prepare.  Traditionally my grandmothers used tamarind (sampaloc) or the small Filipino limes called “Calamansi” to make the soup sour.  These days it’s so much easier, you can buy the powdered soup base at most Asian markets or even order it on Amazon(Affiliate Link)

This dish is typically eaten with steamed white rice with a side of “Patis“, Filipino fish sauce also available at Asian markets and on Amazon.  It can be made with fish, shrimp, or meat with assorted vegetables like spinach, radish, eggplant, tomatoes, onions, or string beans.  This time I made it with shrimp, spinach, radish, tomatoes, onions, and jalapeno pepper.  I like to add the pepper to give it a bit of spice, we all love spicy things in our family.

In most Filipino households this shrimp soup is made with whole shrimps, meaning shrimps with shells and heads on.  I’m not a big fan of shrimp heads so I use shrimps with shells on.  You can also use prawns if you have any handy.

Ingredients:

1 lb. Shrimp shell on

10 cups water

1 large tomato, thickly sliced

1 large onion, thickly sliced

1 packet Knorr Tamarind Soup Base powder

1 bunch radish, peeled and quartered

1 bunch spinach, stems cut and leaves separated

2 large jalapeno pepper whole

Directions:

Boil tomato and onion in the water for about 5 minutes

Add soup base powder, stir until dissolved

Add shrimp and radishes, bring to boil

Boil for another 5 minutes

Add spinach and jalapeno

Cover and reduce heat

Simmer for about 15 minutes

Serve with steamed white rice and side of patis for dipping

Chinese-Style Deep-Fried Salty Shrimp Recipe

Chinese-Style Deep-Fried Salty Shrimp Recipe

This is a simple recipe, the only caveat being that you need to deep-fry the shrimp. But it’s not really an ordeal. Frying shrimp takes five minutes, tops, even for ones that are quite large. This recipe is one Cantonese version of deep-fried shrimp: once the shrimp are fried, you toss them with minced garlic, green onions, and red chili pepper flakes, all of which you have browned with a bit of oil. The garlic and inexperienced onions hold tight the just-fried shrimp. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and no matter alternative spices you prefer. The seasonings can stick practically to the shells, that square measure coated during a very little egg and asylum or flour, however no matter doesn’t hold tight the shrimp are fun to grab from the platter.

If you want to continue in a Chinese vein, you can add things like five-spice powder or ground Sichuan peppercorn. Or, you can sprinkle on Old Bay and smoked paprika.It is finger-licking good. When the shells are perfectly thin crisp and the innards are ripe for the eating, the balance between the two is pretty wonderful and yummy Chinese-Style Deep-Fried Salty Shrimp!!
