Ginataang Hipon Recipe by Mama Sita’s

My family raved about this seafood dish for dinner last week. It’s (again!) from the Mama Sita’s Lutong Bahay recipe book and I’m so happy that they’ve loved everything I tried from the book so far.
 
The secret ingredient is the Caldereta Mix from Mama Sita’s. It’s fine to cheat once in a while (makes your cooking time shorter), especially during those lazy nights when you wish you can just relax in the living room after a long day.
 
The rich and spicy sauce is the highlight of the dish. It looks like kare-kare and tastes just like curry but personally, I’d like to call it “Shrimp Caldereta“.
 
Tip: 2 green peppers may be too much for some members of the family so you may want to use only a piece for that subtle hint of spiciness. I also added string beans. Put the string beans into the pan with the coconut milk and simmer for a few minutes before adding the peppers and the shrimps.
