Camaron in Spanish means shrimp while rebosado comes from rebosar which means to overflow. In Tagalog, rebosado means to dip in or covered with batter. In other words, camaron rebosado is shrimp dipped in batter and deep-fried.
The shrimp, after being shelled, trimmed and deveined is seasoned with salt and soaked in calamansi juice. It is then dipped in batter then deep fried. This dish is similar to the Japanese tempura although they vary in some ingredients used. Also, tempura is dipped in soy sauce while camaron rebosado is dipped in sweet and sour sauce.
