I got de-virginized… and I’m proud about it!

August 15, 2009

I bet you are more than eager to read my post now because of that very catchy title. Well, to tell you the truth, the title is quite right… not on a naughty note though! LOL.

Earlier today, Mommy requested that we buy crabs from her friend who brings her seafood. Since I know that she loves seafoods a lot and would eat more that what she normally consume, I didn’t think twice on paying the old lady vendor. Besides, the bunch of crabs was only offered to us at P80.00 (less than $2). Quite cheap eh?!

Mommy wanted it cooked ala-dampa style, buttered crabs that is. Since I’m not a kitchen person, I don’t have any idea of how to cook that thing… or any dish for that matter. So what I did was browsed my way to the internet to check on how to cook buttered crabs. And luckily, I found a very simple instruction at Thank God for the internet! LOL.

Since I have a kitchen allergy (this is just my personal disease, LOL!), I tried to tell my Mom how to do it. But she keeps on asking so many times until I finally gave in an said, “Ok fine, ako na lang ang magluluto!” My Mom was extremely surprised and said, “Hindi nga, anak?!?! Sa wakas!!!” I think with my Mom’s statement, you know have a much clearer idea how allergic I am to work in the kitchen. LOL.

According to, here are the main ingredients:

1 kilo large shrimps/prawns
2 cups of Royal Tru Orange soda (or something similar)
pinch of salt
1/2 cup of butter
4 cloves of garlic, minced

Of course, I replaced shrimps with crab… and also orange soda with white soda. Wala kasing Royal Tru Orange sa tindahang malapit sa amin *sad*

So, here are the illustrations of my ingredients:

Here’s the procedure how to cook:

Place the shrimps in a large wok in medium to high heat. Sprinkle with salt and pour soda over the shrimps until all are slightly covered in the liquid. Simmer for 4 to 5 minutes or until the shrimps turn orange. Do not overcook the shrimp as this will make the shell very difficult to remove. Remove the shrimps from the wok and set aside.

In a separate pan, saute the garlic in butter. Once the juices of the garlic mix with the butter, pour in the remains of the soda (now flavored with shrimp juice) into the pan. Reduce until desired consistency. Pour over the cooked shrimps. Served with steaming white rice.

And I did as instructed:

I never thought it was such an easy thing to do. In less than 30 minutes, I was able to complete my kitchen stint. And here is my finished product:

I also prepared my fave side dish, steamed corn and carrots that is, to make our lunch more appetizing.

Ladies and gentlemen, lunch is served:

Mommy said it tasted good. Oh di ko sya pinandilatan para sabihing masarap ang luto ko ah! But hey, I share the same comment… modesty aside, masarap pala ako magluto! Pwede na ata ako mag-asawa, bwahaha! Seriously, I was happy that my Mom liked my cooking and she was able to really eat well.

So, I’m happy to say that today, I was indeed got de-virginized… I’m no longer a Kitchen Virgin… and I’m so darn proud about it!!!

Next time, I’ll try buttered shrimps! 😛

    Panalo sa Title! Sangkatutak na images kaagad ang pumasok sa isip ko pagkabasa ko pa lang ng title. hahahaha.

    I always add kalamansi and a bit of minced ginger when cooking buttered shrimp para mawala yung lansa. Never tried it with crabs, though. Mahal kasi.

    hmmmm… sige nga, i’ll that it next time with calamansi and ginger. thanks for the tip 🙂
