Ginataang Hipon, Sitaw, at Kalabasa Ingredients
This dish is a combination of two popularGinataandishes, namelyGinataang Hiponand卡拉巴萨的Ginataang Sitaw。正如您所注意到的那样，前者不经常使用蔬菜。只有辣椒和生姜为这顿丰盛的饭菜增添了额外的味道。这不一定是一件坏事。许多人一次又一次地喜欢Ginataang Hipon的丰盛虾。用一部分米饭享用这道菜，将立即让您饱满！人们喜欢这种Ginataang Hipon演绎也就不足为奇了，因为它也很容易制作，并且不需要很多其他成分。
But for those who enjoy healthier alternatives but long for that creamy taste of gata, ginataang sitaw at kalabasa is more often than not a go to. Squash is quite the ingredient; this bright yellow ingredient has a mild but sweet taste you can use in a repertoire of dishes. And sitaw is equally as versatile and dynamic! Not only that, but both of these ingredients have their fair share of nutrients important in any balanced diet.
This dish makes use of almost the same ingredients as ginataang hipon, with common spices like ginger, garlic, and onion. The only difference thus lies in the meat that you use. In ginataang sitaw at kalabasa, pork makes an appearance, adding protein to this hearty dish. While this addition may be seen as optional, pork gives this ginataang delight an extra layer of texture and flavor. Juicy, tender, and delicious, your pork can easily soak up the rich flavors of your coconut milk and other spices.
In this Ginataang Hipon, Sitaw, at Kalabasa, the ingredients are essentially the same. Here is a list of what this dish requires, as well as possible substitutes as you see fit:
- 虾。For this dish, you’ll need to clean about one pound of this sumptuous seafood. Depending on your preference, you can peel the shrimp in order to make it easier once eating. But I prefer keeping them intact, in order to preserve as much flavor as possible. The heads of shrimps, particularly, are insanely flavorful!
- 西塔(String beans). An ever popular green in any Filipino dish, sitaw is one of the easiest vegetables to access at your local supermarket. If you’re looking to try something new, though, slim asparagus or even yard long beans may do the trick! Long green beans (locally known as bitsuelas or Baguio beans) are also good alternatives.
- Coconut milkis a major ingredient. Fresh is best, but canned and the ones in powder form also works for this dish.
- Yellow onionor any color of onion should be ok.
- Bagoong alamang（建议使用虾糊）。但是，鱼露（Patis）也效果很好。
- malunggayleaves。The popular powerhouse vegetable is one you see in dishes liketinolaandsinigang。malunggay叶有许多营养素和维生素，可以使您的身体比以往任何时候都更健康！在您的杂货店里找不到这些东西吗？不用担心;菠菜也很健康，也很美味！
Some people opt to add ginger to ginataang hipon as well.Gingermasks the fishy smell that so often follows seafood around, but it also adds a distinct flavor of its own. The smell and taste of ginger is unmistakable, and any dish you add it to becomes infinitely better. And don’t forget its large array of health benefits, too!
