Ginger & garlic shrimps

It has been a busy two months. I got a new job, which is awesome. We moved in a new appartment. Lots of changes and it feels so good even though our days seem to be too short to do what we’d like to do.

I am a heavy sleeper. I basically sleep 9 to 10 hours a night. I need it. Needless to say that, with winter coming and all these changes, it didn’t help.

I am going to try to be more present on here but since we don’t have the internet yet, it is a little bit difficult. I have so much recipes and travel posts to share with you. Just bare with me, we will get there.

Theses shrimps are delicious as a starter or in aperitif. It’s a recipe I highly recommend and I will do it as soon as I’ll be inviting some friends at our new house.  It’s easy and in 30 minutes, you can serve it.

You can make it as a main course by serving it with noodles or rice.

Ginger & garlic shrimps (serves 3-4) :

  • 2 pounds shrimp, peeled and deveined (fresh or defrosted)
  • 4 large garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 cup peeled, grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • Salt
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

Clean and shell the shrimps.

Preheat a pan on medium-high with the vegetable oil.

Add the garlic and ginger, cook it for 30 seconds stirring constantly.

Add fish sauce, sugar, chili powder, salt and shrimps to the pan.

Cook for 8-10 minutes stirring well until the shrimps start to caramelize.
