Shrimp with Quail Eggs and Green Peas

If you are a fan of light dishes then you might like Shrimp with Quail Eggs and Green Peas. This light dish is basically a vegetable and seafood dish combined. Depending on your preference, this can either be served as a main dish or as a side dish.

Just like our other recipes, the ingredients for this dish can vary. Some like this with young corn and vegetable broth while others add a little milk to make the sauce richer. As for me, I like it this way – simple yet delish.

    Hi Mr. Venjo, thank you for your recipes, made me look like a professional chef to the eyes and taste of my children. I must admit I am not very good in the kitchen but your recipes are heaven sent. Thank you for sharing your God-given talent. God bless you more so you can bless many others like me. By the way, since I don’t have singkamas and green peas, I tried substituting the veggies with snow peas and frozen carrot and corn, the result is not so bad, my children loved this dish. Thank you again.

  2. I am fan of your site please if you can send me recipes on main courses, pastas, seafood, vegetables, pork & chicken, fish…
