Adobo Style Shrimp (Filipino)

Yes, you can pretty much "adobo" anything. Here is an adapted recipe I found somewhere online that I tweaked a bit here and there. [The original recipe contained MSG as one of the ingredients.] I don't know if this is "authentic" per se, because all cooks have their own preferences, but it does follow the basic recipe. Hope you enjoy!

ingredients

directions

  • Wash shrimp and cut off whiskers. Drain.
  • Place in pan or wok, add all ingredients except sugar and cooking oil.
  • Cook shrimp until not quite cooked on MED HEAT, maybe 2-4 minutes depending on your shrimp size.
  • Drain shrimp (along with garlic). Set sauce aside, and add the sugar.
  • Heat cooking oil and fry shrimp and garlic together on MED LOW HEAT.
  • When garlic is lightly browned, return the sauce to the pan and finish cooking shrimp.
  • [Be sure to not overcook the shrimp-- you can tell if they turn into little O's" instead of C's].
  • [Note: If you want a spicy "adobo", add 1 tablespoon of hot sauce or 1-2 minced hot peppers of your preference.].
  • Put on serving platter and garnish with chopped scallions (optional).
  • Serve with steamed Jasmine rice.
