Shrimp with Spicy Garlic Sauce

Serves: 4

Use the chili sauce of your choice. I like to use the sweet red chili sauce. If you prefer, less sweet use Sriracha, but try 1/2 tsp of it to begin with and adjust if you like it hotter. Heinz chili sauce is like spicy ketchup.

Total Time:


1 1/2 pounds uncooked large shrimp
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sweet red chili sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 teaspoons chinese rice wine or dry sherry
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves garlic, crushed or finely chopped
1 pinch freshly-ground black pepper
1 scallion, thinly sliced


1 Peel the shrimp, leaving the tail segments intact. Devein the shrimp if you choose.
2 In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, chili sauce, sesame oil, rice wine, and sugar and set aside.
3 In a wok or large pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Stir-fry the garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the shrimp and cook until both sides are pink, about 2 minutes on each side. Add the sauce mixture and stir so the shrimp is fully coated. Season with black pepper.
4 Remove from the heat and garnish with chopped scallions. Serve with rice or vegetables.
