Halabos na Hipon sa Sprite with Lemon. This Halabos recipe was inspire by a similar dish that I have cooked a couple of years back called Halabos na Hipon sa Royal Tru-Orange. My Halabos na Hipon sa Sprite with Lemon is cooked with sprite instead of Royal Tru-Orange. Yes most Halabos are cooked with either Sprite or 7-Up, now what is so especial about the dish? As I mentioned my Halabos na Hipon sa Sprite with Lemon was inspired with my Halabos na Hipon sa Royal Tru-Orange. Okey instead of using orange I used Lemon, make sense?
Cooking is basically the same except for the main ingredients as discussed above.
Now if you are still looking for a similar recipe for your shrimps take a look of the recipe of my other version of Halabos. Just click the link list below to check the post from the archives.
