One of the perks when you live near the sea is that you get fresh (and I mean really FRESH!) sea produce most of the time. So fresh that sometimes the shrimps, squids and the fishes are still alive when you buy them. :)
...and that was the case with the shrimps above. My sister immediately cleaned the writhing and jumping shrimps (just cut off their antennae and rostrum) and cooked them. Nothing fancy. First, she sauteed some onions and garlic in vegetable oil for a few minutes then added in the cleaned shrimps. When most of them turned reddish she added a bit of salted butter and waited for the rest of the shrimps to cook (which wasn't long). A few sprinkles of salt, and that was it!
Sweet and juicy...
To eat, we just remove the head and shells, then dip the succulent shelled shrimps in properly aged coconut vinegar (mixed with chili and crushed garlic). Perfect! :)
