Shrimp In Sour Soup
"The shrimp version of sour soup usually goes with vegetables like string beans and sweet potato tops. In this Shrimp in sour soup recipe, we used calamansi as an alternative to tamarind, to make the soup sour. Not only the calamansi, but we also used sweet potato tops in this recipe. It is more cost-effective since we grow our own sweet potato tops. You should, too! You can substitute it with the usual watercress if you don’t have sweet potato tops."
