One of my goal for this blog is to publish all of the known Filipino recipes and I thought I did it after posting 300+ Filipino recipes, I was wrong and realized it after I saw this post from Lalaine at Kawaling Pinoy. After reading her article I said I will make this as soon as possible because it reminds me a lot of my childhood. I remember my grandmother once in a while make this, she is a Bicolano so banana leaf, coconuts and chillies are a main stay in our dining table. During those time I do hate it not because of how it tastes but because the original version of this dish uses whole shrimps with head and shell on, as a child I don’t want shells with my prawns, it’s just a tedious task for me.
Then I saw this recipe from Lalaine, it was the perfect recipe for me, the shrimps are shelled and it has some added pork that gives a different dimension in flavour. That is why toady I will be making this dish using her recipe with some minor adjustments like the addition of chillies.
