Salted Egg Shrimp

Salted egg is all the rage these days but it is nothing really new to Filipino cuisine. It has been part of our lives for many years as a go-to viand for a quick meal. Or when the budget is tight (remembering college days and impromtu outings…), just add tomatoes and you are good to go!

It is also commonly used as a topping for sweet treats like ensaymada, puto and bibingka. Or to make other food like siopao bola-bola (steamed pork buns) and tamales extra special. It is also used for adding the savory flavors to salad like Pako salad (fiddlehead fern) or ensaladas.

The use of salted eggs has even gained more popularity in the recent years, not only in the Philippines but around Asia. Now there are snacks flavored with salted eggs yolks. From potatoes, mushrooms, chicken and fish skins and biscuits. You name it! It seems like you can put in any dish and it will make it taste better.

Recipes using salted egg yolks are also becoming very  fashionable in the Asian food scene. Salted Egg Shrimp is one of them, and is my favorite so far!

I love how simple and how quick you can prepare this dish. But itis soooo good that you can seve it for special events or occassions. Will definitely impress your friends  and family with your cooking skills.

Additional Tips:

Buy fresh shrimp or prawns. Here is an article to guide you on how to choose, clean, and store fresh shrimp.

Keep the head for more flavor.

Slit the back of the prawn using a sharp knife, devein, wash and drain in a colander. Making the slip a little deeper will make the shimp open up a little while you cook then and will make it easier for the sauce to cling.
