Spicy Shrimp

Leave a comment

This shrimp recipe is wonderful ~ and that is saying something coming form me because I am not a big fan of spicy.  It is NOT that spicy, in fact Mr. Meat Eater did not even come close to breaking a sweat which is how he gauges how spicy something is.  You can always cut down on the amount of red pepper flakes if you want.  It’s a very easy recipe which everyone knows I love.

Spicy Shrimp

4 tbsps water
2 tbsps ketchup
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsps cornstarch
1 tsp honey
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 cup sliced green onions
4 cloves garlic, minced
I pound large shrimp, cleaned, deveined and tails removed

Mix together the water, ketchup, soy sauce, cornstarch, honey, red pepper flakes, and ground ginger in a small bowl and set aside.

Heat vegetable oil in a lskillet over medium-high heat and stir in the green onions and garlic and cook for about 30 seconds. Stir in the shrimp and stir them around to coat with the oil. Cook until shrimp are pink and cooked through ~ just a few minutes. Stir in the sauce and stir until sauce is thickened and bubbly.

Serve over rice.

Makes 4 servings.

Happy Cooking!
