Salmon Belly in Miso Soup or Sinigang sa Miso na salmonSinigang is I think the second popular dish in the Philippines. It uses different souring ingredients like tamarind, guava, kamias and calamansi or any Sinigang mix available in the supermarket. You can use pork, seafood and fish for this recipe. The cooking procedure is not that complicated, so anyone can prepare and can serve this dish anytime.

However, in this article, we will ditch the usual souring ingredients. We will use the Japanese yellow miso paste and Salmon belly to make this Sinigang recipe. The miso paste and salmon belly are available in any supermarkets.

Anyway, here are the things you will need on how to cook salmon belly in miso soup.

Salmon Belly in Miso Soup ( Sinigang sa Miso na salmon)


  • 500 grams of salmon belly ( pre-cut)
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • ¼ cup of sliced tomatoes
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoon of miso paste
  • 1 bundle of pechay
  • ½ tablespoon of Sinigang mix ( miso)
  • Water or rice water (hugas bigas)
  • Cooking oil
  • Fish sauce/ salt

Cooking Procedure:

  • In a cooking pot, put a little amount of oil then heat it. Sauté garlic, onion and tomatoes until soft. Stir in it the miso paste. Then add the Sinigang mix and water. Bring to boil.
