Milkfish Sour Soup With Miso

We have fish for our lunch and dinner for several days now. There was news about the Ebola-Reston virus in pork so the best way to be safe is stay away from pork in the mean time.

Unlike my husband, my knowledge of fish meals is quite limited - either fish in sour soup, steamed, fried, sweet and sour, and my all time favorite, sarciado. I don't like it grilled. I thought of cooking milkfish sour soup in miso (sinigang na bangus sa miso). I like the tangy taste of miso. It's a great flavor enhancer. Can you see the bangus belly from the picture? That's what I love best!

As a child I remember my mother set aside fried bangus for me because I don't like anything cooked in sour soup. I have acquired the taste for sinigang as I grow up. I'm what you call "pihikan" (choosy), but that was before. Nobody will believe me now if I tell them that. Anyway, you get to be with a lot of people, you go to a lot of places and sometimes you have no choice but to partake the food that is served to you. You also get curious why they seem to be so engrossed eating a particular dish. Best of all is having a husband who knows how to cook and is adventurous in trying different dishes. That helped a lot in my food evolution.

This is my first post for Life Snippets' Food Friday. Let me take a tour and check all other entries.
