How to cook Shrimp Adobo or Adobong Hipon

Shrimp Adobo Recipe or Adobong Hipon is a finger lickin’ good, easy to cook Filipino dish. Let me give a little background of  Filipino Adobo, it is the name of a popular dish and cooking process in Philippine cuisine that involves meat, seafood, or vegetables marinated in a sauce of vinegar, soy sauce and garlic, browned in oil, and simmered in the marinade. It has sometimes been considered as the unofficial national dish of the Philippines.  Adodo dish has a very long shelf-life due to one of its primary ingredients, vinegar, which inhibits the growth of bacteria.

This Shrimp Adobo is one of the many Adobo Recipe variants that we made,  here are the others Adobong Manok, Pork Adobo, Adobong Balut, Adobong Tahong, Adobong Sitaw and Chicken Pork Adobo.  You will surely love this Shrimp Adobo because it’s so delicious, yummy and tasty.
