How to cook Seafood Kare Kare

Seafood Kare-Kare Recipe is similar to the traditional Kare Kare but instead of beef, pork or chicken we will use seafood to have a healthy twist. It is made from peanut gravy and vegetables such as string beans and eggplant perfect for vegetarians.

Cooking the usual Kare Kare is very time consuming because you have to simmer it for hours to make the meat tender, the good thing about Seafood Kare-Kare the seafood are much less time to prepare compared to meat. In this recipe, all you need is to steam the shells and any other seafood that you like to add in this dish such as shrimps, squid rings and mussels.
