Just like most of the recipes in this cooking blog, ginisang hipon in garlic and butter is one easy, quick and enjoyable meal that you can prepare for your family. You only need a handful of ingredients to cook this quick dinner meal. Hipon is shrimp, by the way. There’s butter, there’s shrimp (or hipon). What more can I say! Yum! Yum! And Yum!

Before I proceed, let me say first that I missed this cooking blog, my baby. I’m back for now after a long hiatus after actually having a (real) baby. I have to admit, I’ve forgotten quite a lot about how to blog. Preparing the photos for this simple and quick meal took a lot of time. It’s more challenging now that I’m a mom, too; because I have to find that extra time when the bub is sleeping or is pre-occupied so I can tinker away with my lappy. While, ginisang hipon in garlic and butter is an easy doable recipe that can be cooked in 10-15 minutes; doing a picture tutorial of it took some precious hours to finish. It’s all good, though. Like what I said, I missed writing about food. I love food. Eating is one of my favourite pastimes. Sharing it with several readers and getting likes and comments on my recipes just boosts my day. So welcome back, beingwell! I missed you!


Moving on, let’s cook this ginisang hipon in garlic and butter!

  • Cracked or powdered pepper
  • Powdered garlic
  • Salt or fish sauce
  • Cooking oil
  • Seven up or Schweppes (optional)
 
Directions in cooking ginisang hipon in garlic and butter:

1. Marinate the shrimps in fish sauce or salt, pepper and powdered garlic. Toss the shrimps with your hands to make sure they are all covered completely. If you’re in a rush, fish sauce is definitely the way to go instead of salt. If you are using the soda, add it in, as well. It will give a lovely sweet flavour into the dish.

2. Leave the marinated shrimps aside for 10-15 mins. or longer. You can obviously prepare this way ahead.
3. When you are ready to cook, heat the cooking oil in a pan.
4. Under medium heat, sauté the garlic. I tend to press my garlic to release its flavour and aroma. Or so that’s what I think what happens when I do I press upon those garlic.

5. When the garlic turns sticky and golden, add in the butter. Watch out for the oily mixture to go bubbly.

6. Then, finally, add in the marinated shrimps. I used tongs because I don’t like the salty marinade in there.

7. Mix and toss the shrimps. When they turn orange or when their color change, wait for about 5-10 more minutes. Make sure not to overcook them as shrimps cook quite fast.
