There are so many ways to make dressing, so I have combined several of the recipes that I have and come up with this one. Instead of using the canned chicken broth you can use homemade if you're making a chicken to go with this, and you can also add the shredded cooked chicken to the stuffing before baking.

Shrimp Cooked in Coconut Milk
(no ratings)

Visit for a video instruction on how to cook this.

Ginataang hipon is probably one of the best foods 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. Basically, ginataang hipon is just some shrimp boiled in coconut milk, added with some vegetables. It is also best with squash. I just did not have the squash when I made this recipe because it was not available when we went shopping.
This Filipino recipe is also very healthy and you can eat this however much you want and without guilt. The only problem with this is that the shrimp is really expensive. We couldn’t even eat this as much as I wanted even when I was still in the Philippines.
When I cooked this for Nunnie, he said it was really really good. His only problem with this Pinoy recipe is that I did not take the peel off of the shrimp. That was because in the Philippines, we really do not take off the head and shell of the shrimp. But as you know, Nunnie is just too lazy to take the shell off. So I ended up peeling it for him. It was a little messy, but we, Filipinos, love to eat with our bare hands, so I did not mind.
Ginataang hipon is also a very flexible Pinoy recipe. You can even add green chili peppers to add some heat if you want. But I would never do that because the flavor is already perfect for my taste. The only thing I would add if I could is the squash. And that’s it. I am really hoping that you would try this because it is really good. The key to this recipe is to not let the coconut milk burn at the bottom of the pan and that is why you have to stir it constantly.

"Vanilla extract" usually isn't made with real vanilla. The good news is that it's really easy--and affordable--to make your own.

Western Hidalgo, Mexico known for its excellent cuisine. I stayed at a superbly elegant hacienda adjacent to El Chico Natural Park, from where I obsconded with this dish, before going on to visit the Tula archaeological site, one of ancient Mexico’s most important ceremonial centers. At the ruins you’ll see figures, called atlantes,15-foot sculptures which are considered important symbols of the state of Hidalgo.
