WATCH: How to Make Nilasing na Hipon (Fried Shrimp Marinated in Beer)
This shrimp dish can be both appetizer and main dish!
Shrimp is marinated in beer (you may also use wine or vodka!) and is lightly coated before deep-frying the shrimp to a nice golden color. This is a popular appetizer but it works well as a main dish, too. It's usually eaten with vinegar on the side as a dipping sauce.
