For Filipino’s and for most people who were able to try Sinigang na Tilapia sa Miso is a popular sour fish soup recipe in the Philippines. Cook's Notes: This version that I have is tastier than the usual recipes because I pan-fried the tilapia beforehand. For some reason, it adds an interesting flavor to the dish. I like a one pan There are lots of different Misos (refers to fermented soybeans). This is usually used for this purpose – to make soups. This recipe calls for yellow miso paste (or Blond); it is composed of fermented soy beans plus barley. I have tried it with the Red Misos.

    Slice the tilapia crosswise into half. Rub salt all over the fish. Let it stand for 10 minutes. Heat 2 tablespoons of cooking oil in a cooking pot or pan. When the oil turns hot, pan-fry each side of the tilapia in medium heat for 5 minutes (my wife likes hers crispy almost burnt). Remove the tilapia and place in a clean plate. Set aside. Meanwhile, (you my need to add 2 tablespoons of cooking oil) Sauté the garlic, onion, okra and tomatoes Add the miso paste and then pour-in the fish sauce and water. Let boil. Add the sinigang mix. Stir. Put the fried tilapia in the cooking pot. Cook for 3 minutes. Add the okra. Cook for 2 minutes. Turn the heat off.
