Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic (approximately 3 to 4 cloves garlic)
  • 5 tbsp chopped lemongrass (approximately 1 large lemongrass)
  • 6 tbsp chopped shallot (approximately 1 small shallot)
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 to 6 thai chili, chopped
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 lb U/15 head removed & deveined shrimp

Instructions

  1. Heat a large skillet (possibly 12” skillet) over medium high heat; add butter, garlic, lemongrass, shallot and pinch of salt. Sauté for 5 to 6 minutes, stir occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, mix fish sauce, honey, thai chili and black pepper in a small mixing bowl to make sauce. Set aside.
  3. Add the shrimp into the skillet, stir well so the shrimp will be coated evenly with the butter and aromatics. Spread the shrimp evenly as possible and cook for 2 minutes or until it’s half way cooked through.
  4. Pour the sauce mixture and stir. Cook for additional 2 minutes or until shrimps are fully cooked. (adjust cooking time if you are using smaller size shrimp than U/15.) Remove from heat and serve immediately. Enjoy with my Garlic Noodle or Garlic Rice!
