    1. 1
      Thoroughly combine the lime juice, sugar, fish sauce or oyster sauce and sambal or chili paste in a jar or small bowl sauce (increase the amount of sambal if you’re a heat freak).
    2. 2
      (Sambal is available in the condiment section of most Asian markets and in the specialty or gourmet section of some large supermarkets).
    3. 3
      Pour this sauce into a 10-inch non-stick pan.
    4. 4
      Turn the heat to medium high and bring to a boil.
    5. 5
      Add the shrimp and reduce heat to medium low.
    6. 6
      Cook until the shrimp is tender and the sauce thickens slightly, about 3 to 4 minutes (depending on size of shrimp) – if you like a thicker sauce, temporarily remove the cooked shrimp with a slotted spoon while the sauce continues to thicken, this will prevent the shrimp from becoming overcooked and rubbery.
    7. 7
      Add cilantro to the sauce.
    8. 8
      Taste and adjust the seasonings, pour over cooked rice or noodles.

      This was full of flavor, but it was too sweet for my taste. It went together in a snap once I located sambal oelek chili paste at Wegman's. Made for Top Favorites of 2008 Tag, based on recommendation by TeresaS.

      Yummy, yummy. This is a 5+ star recipe. It's packed full of flavor. DH and I like things spicy so I used 1/2 tsp of the chili paste. Next time I will use even more. Quick and easy dish to prepare. I served it over soba noodles with steamed broccoli for my side dish. This is a make again recipe.

      I'm so glad Miller had the chance to post this. It was terrific. Served over angelhair pasta with some veggies, it made a marvelous meal.
