Pinangat na Isda Recipe

Pinangat na Isda is a Filipino Fish dish. Pinangat: the sour version using bilimbi (kamias). Pinangat na Isda is one of the simple Filipino Food that I like eating. There is nothing fancy about this dish, yet I enjoy having it. Maybe it is because of its natural flavor that relaxes my taste buds — or perhaps the nostalgia that it brings.


  • 1 lb fish, cleaned and salted
  • 8 pieces bilimbi (kamias)
  • 2 medium tomatoes, wedged
  • 1 teaspoon whole peppercorn
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water

Cooking Procedure

  1. Alternately arrange the fish, bilimbi, and tomatoes in a wide cooking pot.
  2. Sprinkle salt and whole peppercorn, and then pour-in water.
  3. Cover the cooking pot and turn on the heat to medium. Let boil.
  4. When the liquid starts to boil, adjust the heat to low. Continue cooking for 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Turn off the heat and transfer to a serving plate.
  6. Serve with steamed rice.

Share and enjoy!
