Camaron Rebosado Recipe

I wanted to cook shrimp tempura but looking at the procedures it makes me so lazy so I ended up cooking camaron rebosado. I don’t normally measure my ingredients so season your shrimp according to your taste. This is my version of camaron rebosado. I used the F.E.B. (Flour, Egg, and Breadcrumbs) procedure.

½ kilo of shrimp (shelled and deveined)
1 lemon
8 tbsp of flour
Salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder
2 Raw eggs
Cooking oil for deep frying

Marinate the shrimp in lemon juice for 30 minutes. Heat a pan and pour in the cooking oil. Combine flour, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder. Beat the eggs. Put the shrimp in flour mixture, then egg, and lastly breadcrumbs. Then deep-fry until the color turns to golden brown.

Update: August 2021 Purefoods Tail-on Shrimp

I love shrimp but I seldom cook Camaron Rebosado or Shrimp Tempura because it needs a lot of cooking oil. I can’t even remember the last time I cooked this at home but I love eating this if this is available on the buffet table. 

Anyway, just this year I discovered that Purefoods has Seafoods Delight Tail-on Shrimp so I ordered this online.  What is nice about this product is you don’t need to thaw and no more cooking oil, you can toast it on your oven toaster for 15 minutes. But if you don’t have an oven toaster, you can also deep fry it. 

Oven Toaster 

1. Take out from the freezer. No need to thaw. 
2. Oven toast for 15 minutes. (cooking may vary depending on cooking wattage) 
3. Serve Crunchy 

Deep Fry 

1. Take out from the freezer. No need to thaw. 
2. Deep fry for 2 to 3 minutes on medium heat or until golden brown. 
3. Remove from pan and drain excess oil. 
4. Serve while hot. 

But since I have an air fryer, I use my Philips HD9270 Air Fryer to cook this Tail-on Shrimp. The same process with the oven toaster but I only cook this for 8-10 minutes at 190C. It turned out really crunchy compared to my Camaron Rebosado from scratch. 

With regard to taste, it is just okay. I just find it a little bit salty for my taste kung pang appetizer pero okay naman kung may rice. I still have another pack, let see kung mabago lasa sa next na luto. Hehehe!
