Sinigang na Bangus or Sinigang na isda is a traditional Filipino Food.The main ingredient of this soup dish is milkfish (this is locally known as Bangus) — although you can use any type of fish that you desire. Compared to ordinary fish sinigang, this sinigang na bangus sa miso has richer flavor. There is an element of umami (savoriness) in every bite. The miso (or soybean paste) is regarded in adding the interesting flavor to this dish. I like sinigang, in general. Sinigang na Bangus sa Miso is my favorite among all the seafood sinigang dishes. I enjoy its rich taste and balanced flavor.
