|Halabos na Hipon|
Nothing fancy, this dish. Whenever I am in the mood for something quick and simple but at the same time bursting in flavor, Halabos na Hipon is my go-to meal. It's sweet, salty, and surprisingly exquisite in taste. The key of course is fresh shrimps. Anything less than that, might as well forget it. The local public market being a wellspring of fresh seafood, sometimes all it takes is a couple of ingredients and you are set for lunch on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Halabos na Hipon
1/2 kilo shrimps
1/2 cup Mountain Dew citrus soda
3/4 tbsp. sea salt
Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan. Cover and steam over medium heat for about 10 minutes or just until shrimps turn pink.
