Guam Shrimp Kelaguen
...raw, smashed shrimp cooked in lemon juice with raw coconut added.


Kelaguen uhang is pronounced ke-la-gwin oo-hang. Shrimp kelaguen is so delish, but it is a time-consuming endeavor. Raw shrimp must be peeled, deveined and de-pooped. The shrimp are then rinsed and each is smashed. Shrimp kelaguen with smashed shrimp, especially fresh with the head on, is much better than chopped shrimp, fresh or frozen. 

While freshly shredded coconut is optional in other types of kelaguen, it is a must in shrimp kelaguen or kelaguen uhang. 

The corn titiyas in the picture above was prepared using freshly made masa instead of masa harina. Once the recipe for corn titiyas via fresh masa is finalized, it will be posted to paulaq.com.
