H’s Simple Shrimp


Halabos na Hipon

We served this with the Beef Nilaga of the previous post. Surf and Turf!

Saute sliced ginger in hot oil. Slide in the shrimp and cook till they turn orange. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with vinegar and chopped garlic on the side.

Easy as 1-2-3 right? This is one of H’s specialties. :)

Other ideas are to marinate the shrimp in Royal Tru-Orange or Sprite for a sweet tang, toss in lots of garlic and onions in the saute, sprinkle red pepper flakes on the shrimp and lots more. As dip alternatives, you can serve soy sauce with hot pepper or lemon butter sauce. This is how I like my shrimp though — fresh shrimp cooked plain and simple. Yum!

    kami naman at home… my cousin would buy shrimp at divi (it’s P20 per heap), cook it with del Monte sweet chilli sauce…and add some chili powder…

    we go into ecstasies… and this every Sunday 😀

    Pinakamasarap na luto ng hipon ay ihilabos lang. Konting asin at asukal(kung walang sprite) at luto sa olive oil. Pag masyado marami rekado nasisira lasa ng hipon:D Yan po ang tunay na lutong Pinoy
