Adobo Style Shrimp (Filipino)

1 lb medium shrimp, unshelled
12 cup vinegar
14 cup water
18 cup soy sauce
5 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons cooking oil (or as you see fit)
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons scallions, to garnish (optional)


Wash shrimp and cut off whiskers. Drain. Place in pan or wok, add all ingredients except sugar and cooking oil. Cook shrimp until not quite cooked on MED HEAT, maybe 2-4 minutes depending on your shrimp size. Drain shrimp (along with garlic). Set sauce aside, and add the sugar. Heat cooking oil and fry shrimp and garlic together on MED LOW HEAT. When garlic is lightly browned, return the sauce to the pan and finish cooking shrimp. [Be sure to not overcook the shrimp-- you can tell if they turn into little O's" instead of C's]. [Note: If you want a spicy "adobo", add 1 tablespoon of hot sauce or 1-2 minced hot peppers of your preference. ]. Put on serving platter and garnish with chopped scallions (optional). Serve with steamed Jasmine rice.
