This is a calming sour soup recipe that you can do with galunggong (also known as the blue mackerel scad, round scad, or shortfin scad). Usually pan-fried is the simplest and easiest way of cooking this, simply sprinkle salt before cooking, but it also has potential with soup recipes, especially sour ones. Kamias (bilimbi fruit) a naturally sour fruit was used in this recipe, together with tomato slices and spring onion made this soup flavorful. This recipe is rich in B vitamins, vitamin C, protein, calcium, fiber, etc.

      Not spicy but it’s sour…
      I used bilimbi fruit here (the taste is like a little bit of citrus fruit like calamansi or lime), to make it natural 💞
      Thanks for dropping by, have a nice day 🌟
