Steamed Shrimp

This dish is very easy to cook since we all know how to steam. I personally love shrimp and knowing that there’s an easy way to cook it makes me excited. I’m always on-the-go because of my busy schedule from work and this dish is very appropriate for me because it can be done in around 15 minutes. My mom used to always serve this for us with vinegar dip and calamansi. You can also eat this delectable steamed shrimp with rice.

Start your timer, here we go.
