Landon's Shrimp Sarciado

Landon kinda (but not exactly) followed my sister Didi's recipe at the end of this post.  It came out super ono!


This was almost gonna be "Jalna's" Shrimp Sarciado except that just as I got done with the prep, Landon came home from work and was able to take over from here.  Yippeeee!!  

He put a little oil in the pan and quickly fried up one small sliced onion and about a pound of shrimp. 

He removed the onion and shrimp and set them aside. He threw in three minced garlic gloves, a large sliced tomato and about 2 tablespoons of patis.

He put the shrimp/onions back into the pan and sautéed.

Lan added some chili pepper sauce, some dashi powder and the eggs. The recipe calls for three large eggs.  Our eggs (Waimana, of course) were medium-sized so Landon used five. 

He simmered until the eggs were cooked. Masarap!!! (tee hee . . . thanks for the "delicious" word, Susan!)

Here's Didi's recipe:

1 lb. small shrimp, peeled, deveined 
½ tsp. salt 
¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper to taste 
2+2 tsp. oil 
3 cloves garlic, minced 
1 large tomato chopped 
1 small onion, chopped 
4 stalks green onion, chopped, white parts only 
½ c. water 
2 TB patis (fish sauce) 
3 large eggs, well beaten 

4 stalks chopped green onion, green parts only 

In a skillet over medium heat; saute shrimp in 2 tsp. of oil. Remove from skillet, set aside. Into skillet; saute garlic, tomato and onions in remaining 2 tsp. of oil. Add water and patis. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and bring to a simmer. Add shrimp and beaten eggs; simmer until eggs are cooked through. Season as needed with salt and pepper.

Looks so ono, and I love the step by step pictures! My iPhone photos of food in the house look so unappetizing, especially compared to yours which makes me so hungry!

You guys should really open a little restaurant - start off small and keep it simple. I'll be a customer.

Nice! I've neva seen that done before. Great idea! I love shrimp!

Here is my rice making update. I think I am on to something.

All rice recipes state one cup rice, two cups water. But my rice always came out soggy! Ugh!

So yesterday when I had my Kalua Pig pork butt over night in my crock pot. I woke up to make rice in my standard Hawaiian kine rice cooker. Instead of 2 cups water, I put 1 3/4 cups water.

Dat was da charm! The rice came out perfect! And not all mushy like before.

So either that rice recipe is wrong. Or the heat in my rice cooker needs CPR! ; )

N, I do feel so grateful that the people in my house like to cook. I know what you mean about the food not needing to be fancy, just ono.


Thank you, Gigi.
