Prawns look scary, huh? Alien scary!
Mike and I have started this tradition of eating seafood on weekends. I bought a kilo of prawns at the Salcedo Market. P650/kilo may seem a lot, but if you order this dish at a restaurant, for sure you won't be able to enjoy as much! A kilo is about 21 pieces, so we enjoyed about 6 pieces each and I saved the rest to be enjoyed some other way.
To prepare this dish, you'll need a little bit of:
salt and pepper
Fry some garlic cloves in olive oil. Add the shrimp to the hot pan and make sure that it isn't overcrowded. Add salt and pepper and add a bit of water. Cover for about 3minutes, then turn off the heat.
Enjoy with a cup or two of rice, and serve with your favorite sawsawan or dipping sauce. Mine is white vinegar with a bit of salt. This is a messy meal, so it's best to bring out a couple of table napkins to wipe off the juice spills from your shirt. Haha!
Edit: I had leftover prawns so this is what I did.
