Food Friday: Spicy Stir-Fried Shrimp
September 26, 2008
I am feeling a little badly about the unflattering shrimp photo I posted on Tuesday. So for today’s Food Friday posting I figured I would show shrimp in a slightly better light. This recipe includes some pre-made chili sauce which may feel like cheating for you cooking purists but it could not be easier and is great over noodles or rice.
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 shallot, thinly sliced
1 pound large shrimp, peeked and devained, tails left in tact
2 tablespoons Asian Chili sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add shallot, and cook until softened and light golden, 2 to 3 minutes,
Add shrimp, chili sauce, and sugar; cook, stirring constantly, until shrimp are pink and opaque, 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve over rice or noodles.
Also: I started the Food Friday postings a couple of months ago because it seemed like a fun idea to try to find five ingredient recipe’s each week. I am unsure if I am going to continue to do it. What do you all think?
