Caramelized Garlic Shrimp


Okay, drop your forks or chopstick! This is a finger licking good shrimp dish! They are sweet, salty and TASTY!

Recipe adapted from Pleasures Of The Vietnamese Table by Mai Pham

Caramelized Garlic Shrimp (tom rim man)

Ingredients


2/3 lb Raw Medium Shrimps, unpeeled
2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
1 1/2 Tbsp Sugar
1 Clove Garlic, chopped
1 Shallot, chopped
4 Tbsp Water
1 Tbsp Fish Sauce
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
5 Sprigs Cilantro, cut into 2 inch lengths

Method

Lay the shrimp on a cutting board. Holding the shrimp down securely, use a sharp paring knife and carefully make a shallow cut through the shell in the back. Remove the black vein (but not the shell), and rinse. Clean all the shrimp in this way. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels.

Heat the oil in a skillet over moderate heat. Add the shrimp and sugar and stir for 1 minute. Add the garlic and shallot, stir 1 minute, and add the water, fish sauce and salt. Reduce the heat and cook until the shrimp are done and the pan is almost dry, about 1 minute or so. Transfer to a plate, garnish with the cilantro and serve immediately.

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite!

Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
