Ginarep or shrimp and corn soup with malunggay is a tasty soup dish that originated from the Bicol region. This simple yet healthy soup is packed with vitamins and nutrients that gives you energy to face your day — take it easy on the shrimp though.
In this recipe, I added the shrimp close to the last part of the process because I did not want to overcook them. However, if you saute the shrimp along with the onion and tomato– I recommend that you immediately remove the shrimp after a minute and add it back during the final steps of the process.
Ginarep is best consumed during lunch or even in the morning. It is the perfect dish to serve during cold weather (and snowstorms too). Have you had this dish lately?
