My husband ate at Shrimp Bucket and he was telling me that he ate a shrimp dish with salted egg and he said it was delicious. He was suggesting me to cook this at home and I told him, di ko pa nga natikman e. He said, parang buttered shrimp din tapos may salted egg lang. #saltedeggrecipe

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that I love shrimp and I always cook buttered garlic shrimp. It is one easy dish that I can prepare when I’m busy or I’m lazy to cook. Lol. I love salted egg too so I always buy salted egg duck in Tindahan ng Itlog ni Kuya at Victoria, Laguna.
Anyway, I check google for the recipe, some fried the shrimp first, some just use egg yolk and some use milk for the sauce. But I always want an easy dish and few ingredients so I decided to follow my recipe for buttered garlic shrimp and I just add the salted egg.
1/2 kilo of Shrimp
2 salted egg (mashed)
2tbsp of butter
4 cloves of garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Remove the shell of the shrimp. Deveined it if you want.
2. Season it with salt and pepper.
3. In a pan, melt the butter and stir in the garlic until fragrant.
4. Add the mashed salted egg and mix.
5. Toss in the shrimp and stir. Cook it until it changes color for about 4-6 minutes.
I tasted it and I was so happy with the result and I even texted my husband na baka di na umabot sa dinner. Hahaha! The salted egg gives more flavor to the buttered garlic sauce and I love it. I will try this with crabs.
