panlasangpinoy's picture
Sizzling Gambas is a shrimp dish that is considered to be both an appetizer and a main dish. Although the term “Gambas” in Spanish pertain to prawns, this dish often uses medium to large sized shrimps (compared to jumbo and colossal prawns) because of price and quantity reasons. On the other hand, the “sizzling” adjective refers to the manner on how the shrimps are presented. A hot metal plate known as a sizzling plate (or fajita plate) is used to serve the dish to make it more appealing and exciting to eat.
