Pinangat na Sapsap

Pinangat na Sapsap 
(Best served with "Kinayod na Manggang Hilaw")

One of my family's favorite dishes served at our dining table during meal time. A very simple recipe that I learned from my Mother as she also learned from her Mom, Nanay Vito

I still remembered those days how Nanay Vito cooked delicious foods for all her Apo's, made our weekend vacation happy and complete. She really made our childhood years memorable as ever.

She used to served this meal with "kinayod na manggang hilaw (grated green mango) and bagoong" as side dishes, that truly makes this dish a perfect meal for everybody.


1 kilo fresh sapsap or talakitok
5 tbsp calamansi juice
1-2 tsp iodized salt
3 tbsp cooking oil


1. Clean fish, drain well.
2. Place fish in a casserole
3. Add salt, calamansi juice and cooking, then cover.
4. Cook over medium heat for 5-7 minutes, until done.
5. May add a little MSG, if you want to enhance the flavor.
5. Best served with "kinayod na manggang hilaw" or "ginisang bagoong balayan"

Let me share with you how to prepare the "kinayod na manggang hilaw" as side dish:

1 piece Green Mango, grated
3-4 pieces garlic, minced
1/4 cup water
1 tsp rock salt

Mixed all ingredients, then served together with prepared "Pinangat na Sapsap"

May you also enjoy this meal the way our family loves it. Thanks a lot.
