Sweet and Spicy Shrimp

Monday, March 30, 2009

Here is one of my favorite and perfected dish, which I haven't done in a while, Sweet and Spicy Shrimp. My version is probably the simplified version without compromising the taste. Here are a few of the ingredients that used. Of course shrimp,

What I did here is that I peeled the shrimps skin but you should not throw the skin away.

You'll also need your spices, the most basic being sugar, pepper,salt, garlic, and chili.

Butter, for this type of dish i would recommend the unsalted butter, and just enough to give that creamy texture...

Tomato sauce for color and to add a bit of flavor.

Here is one of the most important ingredient, clear soda, never use flavored or colored soda. Soda is for family consumption but the best substitute is vodka, to give a slight kick in your meal. As you noticed I didn't give any amount,not that its a secret but Ithe amounts actually differ based on your preference.


1. pour the soda in a pan to heat slightly, use low heat.
2. Add shrimp skin and let it boil until the color of the liquid and the skin changes. If skin is orange and the liquid gets darker, remove the skin and throw it away.
3. add the shrimps and let it cook until the color changes to orange.
4. add the butter, sugar, a dash of salt and pepper.
5. add garlic and chili and let it boil for a couple of minutes under low heat.
6. add tomato sauce and stir lightly, add salt, sugar and pepper as desired and serve.

Very simple but very delicious meal

Last 25-28 of February, my office sent me to Baler and despite the long travel (8 hours) and rough roads I have few regrets upon seeing the wonderful town of Baler. Most of my time was spent on the nice beaches and strong waves that make Baler a wonderful place to relax and spend quality time with your family or love one.
Bahia de Baler, this was one of the hotels that was offered to us during our stay, though they only have few rooms they make it up for their quality of service.

Right infront of the hotel is their function room, a building whose walls are made up almost entirely of glass for you to see the wonderful surroundings, most specially the beach.

The beaches of Baler is really top quality,though the sand is not as white as Boracay, they make this up for the wonderful waves that come ashore, making Baler an ideal place for surfers.

If you can survive the trip and want to go to a place that's peaceful, not so crowded with a nice view, excellent beach, waves and wonderful people, this seems to be the perfect description.
