Jessica’s Pinakbet Recipe
by Sarap Diva

Join Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid as she shows off her culinary expertise and whips up delightful dishes via her newest cooking talk show, Sarap Diva.

Jessica Soho, meanwhile, displays her other passion aside from delivering the news as she treats Regine with her rich Ilocano specialty: Pinakbet. Pinakbet or pakbet is a popular Ilokano dish, from the northern regions of the Philippines, although it has become popular throughout the archipelago. The word is the contracted form of the Ilokano word pinakebbet, meaning "shrunk" or "shriveled". The original Ilokano pinakbet uses bagoong, of fermented monamon or other fish, while further south, bagoong alamang is used.
