Pinangat na isda, also called pangat na isda, is a Filipino dish from Southern Luzon consisting of fish and tomatoes stewed in a broth soured with fruits like calamansi, bilimbi, tamarind, or santol. It can also be used to cook shrimp. It is similar to sinigang, but it is not as tart.[1][2][3][4][5][6]

Pinangat na isda may also sometimes be referred to as paksiw, a related but different dish which primarily uses vinegar to sour the broth.[7][8] Pinangat na isda is also commonly confused with laing (also called pinangat na laing or pinangat na gabi), a Bicolano dish also known simply as pinangat. But they are different dishes.[9][4]

Emilio Aguinaldo’s favorite dish is home cooked pinangat na isda. A top Filipino cuisine, it is steamed fish like tilapia with a fusion of ground chicharrón, patís, burong mangga, labanos or tomato with unsoy sprigs. The steamed fish variations can include Alakaak, Bakoko, Bangus‎, Bisugo‎, Bugaong‎, Hito‎, Kitang‎ or Sapsap‎.[10]
