My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Thoroughly 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 youre a heat freak).
- 2(Sambal is available in the condiment section of most Asian markets and in the specialty or gourmet section of some large supermarkets).
- 3Pour this sauce into a 10-inch non-stick pan.
- 4Turn the heat to medium high and bring to a boil.
- 5Add the shrimp and reduce heat to medium low.
- 6Cook 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.
- 7Add cilantro to the sauce.
- 8Taste and adjust the seasonings, pour over cooked rice or noodles.
