Sinigang sa Kamatis na Lapu-Lapu

Sinigang sa kamatis na Lapu-lapu, (Lapu-lapu fish soup in tomatoes) is a Filipino clear soup seasoned with alot of tomatoes and sea salt. Tomatoes are mashed with your clean bare hands, that is where the savory flavor came from. Lapu-lapu is in the family of Grouper fish, you can also use fresh catch Sea Bass to this type of clear soup.

This Lapu-lapu fish was caught at Lavan island, Iran by my collegue onboard. I’m quite lucky to have onboard a bunch of Fishin’Guy, especially our Chief Engineer Elmer who is a real pro when it comes to catching fish.

And the saying is really true… The best things in life are free!!!
