Photo Hunt 58: Cooked/ing

For today's lunch I prepared "Sinigang na Hipon" (translation: Shrimp in Tamarind Soup). I thought I'd post it for photo hunt cooked/ing theme because it's a uniquely Filipino dish. It's a soup but normally eaten as main course also. There are many variation of tamarind soup dish such as fish, pork or beef. I love anything cooked in tamarind soup. When availble, I normally use fresh tamarind but if not, I use the tamarind powder sold in supermarkets and Filipino stores.

Hi Docchef,
That's very true and the taste is just different. Here, fresh tamarind is imported but I use it whenever it is available :) I must say though that tamarind powder mix are now better that it used to be.
