This sweet and sour shrimp dish recipe is my take on a dish that originated in Asia. Again, one of those dish I make that was inspired by the numerous unforgettable experiences I had when I was there.
I haven't been there in a while, but the flavors of this dish makes the longing more bearable.
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce2 tablespoons ketchup
3/4 cup chicken broth
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon Chinese chile sauce
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, minced
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled
How to cook your sweet and sour shrimp
Get a small bowl and whisk your vinegar, cornstarch, chilli sauce, sugar, chicken broth, soy sauce and ketchup together.
Now go heat a large skillet until it's piping hot.
Add some oil to the skillet making sure the cooking surface gets coated.
Thrown in your garlic and ginger and cook for 10 seconds.
Add in your shrimps and cook until they start to curl. The idea here is not to cook them totally, so do this for less than 2 minutes.
Whisk your sauce and add it to the shrimp. This time, cook until the sauce becomes thick and the shrimps are cooked through. This will take around 3 minutes.
