As I’ve mentioned before, my mother is not one you’ll find busy in the kitchen concocting everyday meals. Growing up, her cooking was more like a special occasion than a daily occurence. But be it that, she does have a repertoire of special recipes up her sleeves. Call me overly bias but I have yet to find one shrimp dish that can beat my mom’s shrimp with oyster sauce. And I say that even with twenty-plus of my very own shrimp recipes here on the blog. 🙂
Although big and bold with finger-licking goodness, my mom’s shrimp recipe is one of the easiest and simplest dish you can make. It requires basic pantry ingredients you probably already have on hand and takes under 30 minutes from prep to dinner! One thing to note, and I can’t stress this enough, make sure that the shrimps are well drained before cooking or you’ll end up with way more liquid. This is sort of “dry” dish with the sauce mostly clinging onto the shrimps, making it perfect for kamayan. Enjoy!
