Nilasing na Hipon Recipe

This Nilasing na Hipon Recipe can be simply translated as Drunken Shrimp. It was called such because the shrimp needs to be marinated in wine or liquor prior to cooking. This dish can be an appetizer and a main dish at the same time.

A popular menu in many Filipino restaurants, especially eateries in night markets, this Nilasing na Hipon Recipe is as good as what you can get in these places. The good thing about making this yourself is that you can limit the amount of alcohol or choose the type of wine that you will be using.

Remember: alcohol evaporated during the cooking process; all that is left is the taste of the wine. you should not be alarmed when trying this Nilasing na Hipon Recipe.All you need to do is to enjoy it. I recommend a sour dip for this dish, such as vinegar. “Sinamak” or plain “sukang paombong” is best. If you have “pinakurat” vinegar then taht is even better.

Try this Nilasing na Hipon Recipe and let me know what you think.

  2. Hi, your site is really helping me. Thankyou! : )

  3. Hi Vanjo,

    I’m just wondering if you used medium sized shrimp. Sa Pinas kasi madaming maliliit na hipon, which i prefer to use sa nilasing na hipon. I haven’t tried yung malalaki…para kasing mas hard yung shell. Can you please advise…thanks!

  4. Thanks for posting this recipe. It’s shrimping season here in FL and I’ve been looking for shrimp recipes.

    I tried doing this one and I couldn’t get the flour coating to stick to the shrimp. What is the technique in doing this?

    This has always been my problem… be it with camaron rebusado, calamares, or any breaded/flour coated recipes.

  5. i checked all all your recipes and it looks good and interesting… i hope so soon from your site… i’ll be as good as you are.

  6. thank you very much to all the recipe’s you shared, this help me alot lalo na sa trabaho. My co-workers love to get together after work or during long week-end ginamit kong mga recipe mo for our potluck(bring your own baon). Just wondering, is your website in Philippines?

  7. thanks for the reply. il certainly try that :-)

  8. Lecs, I see where you are coming from. Nilasing na hipon can’t be called as such if no alcohol is involved. A better alternative is pineapple juice. You can marinade the shrimp in pineapple juice before frying. Now we need a name for that recipe :)

    Hope this helps.

  9. i particularly love shrimps. happy to see some recipes here. just wanna ask if there’s any other substitute for wine or liquor. my husband is a muslim. any form of alcohol is forbidden.

  10. i love to eat but i’m not expert in cooking.this helps me a lot to improve my talent in cooking.i love shrimps and crabs too!do you have any easy and convenient recipes for this stuff?hope you can help me!thanx!
