Camaron Rebosado

Camaron Rebosado is a seafood dish made out of deep fried battered shrimps served with sweet chilli or sweet and sour sauce.

Camaron rebosado — “the Shrimp tempura of the Philippines”, is an easy seafood dish which is made out of deep fried battered shrimps served with sweet chilli or sweet and sour sauce. Though it looks like a tempura this shrimp dish is very different to the Japanese counterpart as the batter of this recipe is very heavy compared to the tempura, and besides, it is served with a different sauce. Itโ€™s more filling and flavourful thatโ€™s why it is commonly consumed with rice together with side dish rather than on its own.
