Shrimp in Butter and Garlic

Not too long ago, I posted an entry on halabos na hipon. I received a few suggestions, which I took to heart. Meeya and Abby, this is for you…

shrimp in butter and garlic

I sauteed the shrimp in butter and garlic and seasoned it with salt and a bit of freshly ground pepper. Because we have a little girl in the house whose tastebuds have yet to develop tolerance for spicy food, I did not add hot sauce to the entire dish. We just added the hot sauce when the shrimps were already on our respective plates. ;) That way, everyone is happy! Hahaha.

This was actually my second attempt. The first time I whipped up this dish, I didn’t peel the shrimps and the end result left me wondering where all the butter and garlic went. Hee hee! I thought maybe I should have peeled the shrimps first. So that’s what I did the second time around. I peeled and deveined the shrimps, but left the tails. That must have done the trick because this time, there was no missing the buttery and garlicky taste. ;)

Simple yet satisfying. You don’t need a master’s degree to do this. Not even a bachelor’s! :D

Oh, and if I may add another variation to the halabos na hipon which I used marinate and steam in salt and sprite (or 7-up), I have now taken to substituting the soda with honey. And it’s yummy still…if not yummier. ;)

    Hi Abby! Matagal ko na rin itong hindi naiiluto. Hee hee! Pero since Lent ngayon, magkakainstant replay ito for sure. :D Tama! Sumali ka na sa raket. Hahaha! The more the merrier! :D

    naku na-miss ko na yang luto na yan. ang tagal na namin dito pero wala pa rin kaming nadi-discover na mabilhan ng fresh hipon. ako naman we prefer shrimp with head on (kasi mas malasa at mas makolesterol hehehe).

    abby, alam ko what you’re up to, hehe.

    Hi Meeya! Kami rin, gusto namin ang ulo ng hipon! Tinanggal ko for this dish kasi weird naman kung me ulo at buntot lang yung hipon. Mwahahaha! Feeling ko kasi, the first time ko ginawa na hindi ko binalatan, parang hindi masyado lumasa yung butter at garlic. :D

    Si Abby, malapit na ring tumodo yan! Hahaha! ;)

    welcome back :) I checked on you a couple of times the last month and couldn’t get on your site.

    I love this butter garlic shrimp. It’s my favorite way of fixing something nice and easy.

    Hi JMom! :D Thank you for the warm welcome! Hahaha! :) My friend, Thess, who was so kind to host Munchkin Cafe had problems with her hosts so the site was down for a while. Then my friend, Meeya (I think you know her!) and I had this crazy idea to try and get our own domain names. Hee hee!

    Butter and garlic are two must have cooking ingredients, don’t you think? ;)
