Sinigang Sugpo/Hipon or Jumbo Shrimp in Bilimbi and Tamarind soup

Sinigang Hipon sa Kamias At Sampaloc or
Jumbo Shrimp in Bilimbi and Tamarind Soup
Its been freezing cold lately so to sooth our chilly bones and to warm our tummy, I've been cooking dishes with soup. This time instead of sinigang fish,meat or chicken, decided to cook sinigang hipon or jumbo shrimp with kamias or bilimbi as the souring agent for my sinigang and a bit of the tamarind also. This dish is loaded with vitamin c from the bilimbi and tamarind and lots of dietary goodness from all the green veggies that I've added such as mustard leaves, string beans and okras. Added some radish, eggplant, tomatoes,onion also not just to add more flavor to it but also a good source of more fiber, antioxidant and etc.

Jumbo Shrimp preferably with head just trim the wiskers and tails
onion sliced
tomatoes sliced
string beans desired cut length
mustard leaves desired cut length
eggplant sliced diagonally
radish slided diagonally
bilimbi or kamias
tamarind powder
salt to taste


Put all ingredients in a pot except for the string beans and mustard leaves. Add water to cover or add more for extra soup. Cook till almost done then add the rest of the ingredients. Make sure not to over cook the shrimp or else it would be a bit chewy or rubbery.

Serve hot and enjoy!!!
