Ginataang Sugpo (Prawns in Coconut Milk)

One of the most tastiest Filipino seafood dish is prawns in coconut milk or locally known as ginataang sugpo. If prawns are hard to find in the market, you can also use jumbo shrimps but in my opinion, prawns are tastier specially those big black tiger prawns.
