How To Make The Best Spicy Sawsawan Commonly Known As “Sinamak”

This spiced vinegar is a good condiment for grilled and fried foods. Chicken Inasal, one of Iloilo’s famous chicken dishes, is best eaten with Sinamak. Some dishes in our recipe roster can be more enjoyed if eaten with this spiced vinegar too.

>2 to 3 cups vinegar (use white, cane, or coconut vinegar)
>1 cup bird’s eye or Thai chilies (dried or fresh will do)
>3 tablespoons ginger, sliced
>1 head garlic
>3 teaspoons whole peppercorns
>1 medium size white onion


1. Combine whole peppercorn, ginger, garlic, onion, and chili in a clean container (usually an empty bottle of liquor). Shake well to distribute the ingredients.
2. Fill the bottle with the vinegar of your choice then tightly cover the bottle.
3. Shake the bottle lightly and store in a safe place for at least 3 days. The longer the storage time, the spicier the vinegar will become.
4. Serve as condiment for fried and grilled foods
