As my son become a big (maybe I can say, huge) fans of shrimp, my mom always make Shrimp Balado just for him. He likes spicy foods, and that comes from my blood. :) Without further ado, here's my version of Shrimp Balado.
500 gr shrimp, peeled with tails intact
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
6 red onions
3 cloves garlic
1 small tomato (if you use a big one, just use a half of it)
salt and sugar to taste
How to :
1. Rub the lime juice and salt onto the prawns. Set aside for 15 minutes.
2. To make the Seasoning, pulse all the ingredients in a mortar or blender several times to chop finely, but do not turn into a paste. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
3. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a wok or skillet with medium heat. Stir-fry the seasoning until fragrant and cooked, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the shrimps and mix until well blended, taking care not to overcook the shrimps. Remove and serve immediately.
*You could remove the tomato, if you like this dish dry.
