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.

Ingredients: 

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.

This had great flavor!! The only change I made was used red bell pepper instead of green as I like the flavor of the red,yellow and orange peppers better. I served over jasmin rice. I will make this again but might add some zucinni or squash.

The Chinese chili sauce was unavailable in my area. Most stores had no idea what I was talking about. I still attempted the receipe, but wasn’t satisfied. Does anyone have any substitution suggestions for the chili sauce or perhaps a link to where I can find it?

I usually don’t like vinegar in any of my food but I tried it with this dish and it was great. It really balanced out the sweet tastes of the sauce

JohnnyRoberts#7

I just finish this recipe, it’s delicious!!! I also added crushed red peppers to give it a little bit of spiciness and it is so unbelievably delicious.

I was not expecting ketchup as an ingredient! This sounds really simple—I never know what to do with shrimp except steam and add lemon and cocktail sauce. (Creative, I know!) But I think I could do this! The sauce looks rather light, too—not super thick and gooey like you sometimes get in take out. Is that the recipe’s sauce on the plating?

I personally do not know about you, but I would remove both the chicken broth and the cornstarch from the original ingredient listing. This makes for a more genuine and real sweet & sour shrimp. Broth and starch are just time-consuming and unnecessary. A bit more of a raw and truly organic flavor adds a taste of health to the mix, and one lives longer from a healthier dish.

This was easy to prepare, yet full of flavor. Shrimp is my favorite see food so I make it when I am craving shrimp. Since this is such an easy recipe I also use it for parties and social events. This website has given some great recipes to showcase at parties.

What people are saying about us:

  • "The shears arrived on time and in perfect condition. The moment I picked them up I knew these were quality shears. The very first thing I used them for was to cut a chicken in half. I cut through the breast, right down the middle and then through the spine. For a moment I thought something was not right with that chicken because I cut through it with such ease. I was amazed! They are extremely sharp and have a very nice weight to them. I feel tempted to buy another pair just because."

  • "Very fast delivery, very well packed, friendly, professional, courteous & very knowledgeable service. I'm a line cook so I go through 2-3 thermometers a month. This thermometer is very well built & very sturdy. It lights up which helps a lot. It's very quick on the readings which you greatly need when you have 15-25 things you need to check an hour. The probe is approximately 6-7 inches & at first I thought that was quite long but the more I've used it I like the longer probe. What more can I say about this? It's a great deal for the money & with a lifetime warranty you can't go wrong. I'll be buying a second & maybe a third for home on the barbeque grill."

    By deb

  • "At last, I can open the jars and bottles without asking for help. We were using some gizmo with a rubber strap that I could never understand how it was supposed to work let alone manipulate it correctly. Chef Remi’s jar opener is very simple to use and it really works on the first attempt with little to no pressure or stress on my arthritic hands. I am so glad I ran across this item and it is well worth the price (which is very good). I can use this tool not only in the kitchen but anywhere there's a jar, bottle or similar container to be opened."

  • "I saw a commercial for these grill mats on TV, it almost seemed too good to be true.....so I bought them to try them out. Everything in the TV commercial was true and more! You can grill ANYTHING on these mats, keeps flavor in foods, you can add cheese & sauces to your food and there's no mess to clean up! Your grill stays clean, your food tastes amazing, and you simply rinse the mats with warm soapy water! I love these grill mats so much I bought another set for my dad, he grills all year round. My dad loved the grill mats also and is now telling his friends about them. AMAZING PRODUCT!!!"

    By Aly's Max

  • "My new favorite kitchen scissors. I love to cook but do everything I can to not have to touch chicken and these are perfect. Nothing worse than a pair of scissors that leave you half way through a cut and then doesn't come through, these are not those. I can't wait to try them out when making jerky next weekend. I will try to remember to post an update after but sure my review will remain the same. These feel very sturdy and like they will last forever. I have ordered several Chef Remi items and love them all. Wish they would make more stuff I could use as I have almost everything available on Amazon from them."
