Sinuglaw Recipe is tuna kilawin (ceviche) with strips of grilled pork liempo (pork liempo), cucumber, onions and lots of chili pepper for a spicy kick. Sinuglaw is a visayan coined word from Sinugba or inihaw in tagalog and grilled in english. While, Kinilaw means Ceviche or raw meat soaked in vinegar. These 2 words were combined to form the word Sinuglaw.
The Visayas and Mindanao Regions loves Sinuglaw so much. It is one of the staple menu in most of the restaurants in the southern regions. While it is a favorite appetizer of beer drinkers, it gets better when there’s lots of green chilis. Majority of the locals would normally pair it with plenty of rice for lunch or dinner with matching seagrapes or seaweed salad. You just have to try this recipe because it is so delicious.
