Shrimp with Spicy Garlic Sauce
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.
|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|
|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.
