Tomato Garlic Shrimp 蒜蓉茄汁炒蝦

Wednesday, April 02, 2008 | Labels: , , |

This dish is sweet and spicy with the added fragrance of garlic. Take care not to add water as the resulting sauce should be thickish and stick to the shrimp. Very appetising and rather simple to make! This sauce works well with crab as well but with crab, an egg will be needed.



1 pound medium sized shrimp (deveined) - it is up to you if you want to shell them or not, I like to cook mine with the shell on

For the sauce:

3 cloves garlic, minced finely
2 tbsp ketchup
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp honey
2 tsp light soy sauce
Pinch of salt
2 chilli peppers (seeded if you don't want the dish to be too spicy)


Saute the garlic and peppers in hot oil (about 1 tbsp) until fragrant. Turn to medium heat and pan fry the shrimp until almost cooked. Mix the sauce ingredients in a bowl. You may add sugar if you think the sauce is not sweet enough. Next, turn the heat down to low and pour in the sauce, coating the shrimp well. Make sure the shrimp is cooked before dishing out. This should only take another 2-3 minutes to avoid over-cooked shrimp. Dish out and garnish with green onions if you wish. Serve hot.
