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. It is similar to a Filipino recipe called sipo eggs.
