I am having self-imposed vacation for 4 days starting today. It’s the Lenten Season and though we really don’t observe Lent as we should by tradition, we do have no-meat Fridays. Oh we started early. Last Monday we had delicious, succulent shrimps… would you call it a sacrifice?
1 tbsp of sugar
1/2 cup of Sprite
Salt and pepper
4 tbsp of crushed garlic
Cut the shrimps’ antennae. Cut along the shrimp back from head to tail and devein. Rinse and pat dry. Mix the shrimps with the above ingredients and marinate overnight.
Drain the shrimps. Heat oil until smoking hot. Deep-fry the shrimps for about 2 to 3 minutes or until crispy. Drain on paper towels. Fry in batches.
