Reliving Mom’s cooking: Pangat sa Calamansi

This particular recipe our husband’s favorite. My mom used to cook this using sap-sap (small-flat-silver fish) for my dad but I like to use pink salmon head for Marvin.


Pangat sa Calamansi


1 pc. pink salmon head, cleaned and chopped

juice of 8-12 pieces calamansi

1 medium sized onion, quartered

2 pcs ripe tomatoes , quartered

1 tbsp patis or fish sauce

salt to taste

1 cup water


  1. Put everything together in a pot.
  2. Simmer until the fish is cooked and tender.
  3. Serve with patis-mansi as dipping sauce.
  4. Enjoy! 🙂


This dish is supposed to be my welcome dish for my dad after his trip to Singapore. I miss you dad.
