Kulinarya’s theme for the month of September 2010 is SPANISH INSPIRED FILIPINO DISHES.
Camaron Rebosado (Filipino Battered Prawns) are prawns that’s unshelled with tails on and are marinated with calamansi juice and salt. They are then coated in batter and deep fried till crispy. It is served with Sweet and Sour Sauce, thanks to the Chinese influence in Filipino Cuisine. In Spanish they call their Battered Prawns as Gambas Rebozadas and the batter includes saffron powder or dye. As you can see, Filipinos made this dish unique by adding the twist of the citrus/salt marinade before coating the prawns with the batter mixture.
