Shrimp in Coconut Milk

pinoyrecipes's picture
Ginataang hipon is probably one of the best food cooked in coconut milk. This is one of my favorite. I just loved the thick sauce from the coconut milk. There is nothing compared to it.
  Cooking oil/Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Minced garlic 2 Teaspoon
  Sliced ginger 1 Tablespoon
  Minced onion 3 Tablespoon
  Coconut milk 1 Can (10 oz)
  Fish sauce To Taste
  Ground black pepper To Taste
  String beans 1 Cup (16 tbs) (However Much You Want)
  Shrimp 1 Cup (16 tbs) (However Much You Want)

Heat some cooking oil or olive oil in a saucepan.
Sauté the minced garlic.
When the garlic is cooked, sauté the ginger.
Then put the onion.
When the onion turns transparent, pour in the coconut milk.
Let it simmer for a very low heat.
When it starts to boil, mix in the shrimp. Stir it constantly.
Season it with fish sauce and ground black pepper.
Let it simmer until the sauce has thickened up.
Then add the string beans and let it cook just how you like it.
Serve with steamed rice.
