Filipino Vegetable Stew With Fried Fish

First, let's break down the name of this mouthful of a dish: inabraw na saluyot, labong at pritong isda.

  • Inabraw: vegetable stew (also called dinengdeng)
  • Saluyot: jute (leafy green vegetable)
  • Labong: bamboo shoots
  • Pritong isda: fried fish

Thus, this dish is a stew that features jute, bamboo shoots, and fried fish. The dish comes from the region of Ilocos, located in the Philippines, and it is typically flavored with fermented fish sauce, known as bagoong.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 40 min
Ready in: 50 min
Yields: 3 to 4 servings


  • 2 cups saluyot (jute leaves)
  • 1 cup labong (bamboo shoots)
  • 2 tablespoons onion, julienned
  • 2 pieces (approx. 350 grams) fish, any kind (I used tilapia)
  • 1/4 cup bagoong (fermented fish sauce)
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • cooking oil, for frying
  • water, as needed


For Preparation:

  • 2 large bowls
  • 2 small bowls
  • 1 large plate
  • 1 small plate
  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • chopping board
  • knife

For Cooking:

  • frying pan
  • turner
  • pot
  • ladle


  1. Heat the cooking oil in a pan. Fry the fish until golden brown on each side. Set aside.
  2. Pour water into a pot and bring to a boil. Add labong (bamboo shoots) and cook until tender. Remove from the heat and discard the boiling water. Set aside.
  3. In the same pot, add fresh water and onion. Bring to a boil.
  4. Add bagoong sauce into the pot. Let it simmer.
  5. Once ready, add labong and cook for 2 minutes. Then add fried fish and continue cooking until a bit soften. Add saluyot (jute leaves) and cook until wilted.
  6. Season inabraw (dinengdeng) with salt and pepper.
  7. Serve with steamed rice.

Tips and Techniques

  • Fish: Choose any kind of fish you like. I used tilapia.
  • Vegetables: You may add other leafy vegetables, as well, such as bitter gourd leaves, sweet potato tops, malabar nightshade, etc.
  • Bagoong: When using bagoong with fish particles, use a fine mesh strainer to extract its juice.

      Hi Miebakagh,

      I love Tilapia too. It's a common fish that we raise in ponds here.
