How to Cook Sinuglaw by Kusina ni Juan

30 October 2021

An important city in the Northern Mindanao for its cultural and historical significance and the various pilgrimage attractions is the City of Ozamiz in Misamis Occidental.


It is also famous for its sumptuous local dishes. One of them is Humba which is the sweet version of Adobo. It is considered a star casserole in every local feast and party in the city. Another famous local dish is the Halang-Halang, or spicy chicken. It means spicy-spicy in English. Want to try this local dish? Make sure that you have some amount of courage to taste this because of its double spiciness flavor. Meanwhile, if you are adventurous enough, they also have the Sampayna, the Visayan version of Tagalog's local dinuguan.


After trying out their delicious and sizzling local dishes, guests and tourists in Ozamiz City might also want their local desserts and treats. For starters, they have Suman or rice cakes with different flavors. You can choose from their ube suman, suman with langka, mango-flavored suman, and many more! They also have Puto Maya or rice cakes that give you a different texture from the famous local Filipino puto. Aside from the usual suman, they also have Sweet Moron for people with a sweet tooth.


All these sweets are perfect matches for their local hot chocolate drink called Sikwate. This is made from their pure local kakao or tablea. All organic ingredients so you can indulge in it without feeling that guilty pleasure.


But all of this palatable food will not be complete if you will not try one of the most popular food in Ozamiz, the Sinuglaw.


Sinuglaw comes from the words Sinugba meaning grilled, and Kinilaw which means soaked in vinegar. A fusion for both of these mouthwatering local dishes from Ozamiz will give you Sinuglaw.


If you want to cook this delicious cuisine, you can check out these easy-to-follow instructions.


Ingredients of Sinuglaw

  • Pork
  • Fresh Tuna
  • Cucumber
  • Soy sauce
  • Vinegar
  • Red onion
  • Ginger
  • Calamansi
  • Chili
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper


How to cook Sinuglaw:

  1. Marinate the pork before grilling. Mix the soy sauce, vinegar, calamansi, garlic, and ground pepper for the marinade in a bowl.
  2. Massage the pork with the marinated sauce then, set aside.
  3. In a bowl, mix the sliced tuna fish with ½ cup of vinegar. Let it soak for 8 minutes for our Kinilaw.
  4. It's now time to grill the pork. Make sure that the griller is hot before grilling the pork.
  5. While waiting for the pork to be grilled, prepare the Kinilaw by pressing the tuna lightly using a fork.
  6. Drain the vinegar or remove the tuna from the bowl. TipThe sourer your Kinilaw is, the tastier it becomes. After draining the fish, it's now time to mix the remaining ingredients. Mix the cucumber, onion, ginger, chili, salt, and calamansi juice in a separate bowl.
  7. Mix the ingredients well before adding the marinated tuna.
  8. Add more vinegar and ginger to your Kinilaw. For a more palatable kinilaw, make sure to put a generous amount of ginger.
  9. After grilling the pork, slice it into smaller pieces. The juicier your pork is, the much better match it will be for your Linilaw.
  10. Put your Sinugba or grilled pork in your Kinilaw. Mix them well.
  11. You can now transfer your Sinuglaw to a serving plate.


And since we're talking about cooking, there's no better place to cook than a big-looking kitchen. If you're looking for ways to improve your kitchen space, here are a couple of tips you might want to consider.


Making your kitchen feel bigger

People are downsizing their living quarters in increasing numbers these days. With millennials purchasing their first homes and elderly nesters downsizing, affordable house and lot and townhouse for sale in the Philippines are becoming more popular.


However, the reduced footprint comes at a price with these more efficient and less priced dwellings. In a task-oriented environment like a kitchen, this presents some particular design issues. So let's take a look at some of the things you can apply to your small kitchen to make it feel bigger.


White or lighter colors

The walls, cabinets, and flooring should all be white or light-colored. Most rooms look small because they don't have enough windows or daylight, which helps to create an illusion of space. It's good that kitchens can be made to look more spacious without undergoing the extra cost of expanding them. Kitchens can look capacious when you use white or lighter hues.  


Although as opposed to this, some individuals might fear that bright kitchens may seem monotonous or clinical. But this should not be an issue in making your kitchen look more prominent. If you know how to disregard the rules of design, you can occasionally get away with it. One of the most effective strategies that you can use in creating the interior design of your kitchen is combining bright and dark surfaces.


Lighten it up

A modest kitchen will seem more prominent if it is bathed in sunlight. So make sure to keep your kitchen windows unadorned with blinds and drapes. But if it's not possible, you can also try to do some of these things.


The most fantastic ideas for a tiny kitchen make the most of the resources at hand. Using reflective materials, such as ceramic tile, marble counters, and stainless steel may cause small kitchens to seem more significant by amplifying the impact of natural and artificial light. In addition, proper illumination enhances productivity. A kitchen island or peninsula is a great place to serve a meal, and pendant lights are a great way to enhance the atmosphere.


Batteries-powered LED pucks may be used to light up the underside of a kitchen cabinet. This is helpful, significantly when you're cutting and measuring. It will be easier for you to see what you're doing! Also, with enough money, LED pucks or strip lights within the cabinets can also assist in brightening up the room and show depth.
