Loved this! It was easy to make and had excellent flavor. I already had everything I needed in my kitchen except for the shrimp. I will definitely be adding this to our rotation of meals. (I found the recipe on a blog I stumbled upon called The Foodie Couple.)
Prawns in Spicy Garlic Sauce (adapted from San Francisco Encore):
1 lb. medium prawn cleaned & peeled
1.5 tspns corn starch
1/4 tspn salt
Dash of pepper
1.5 tspns chili paste with garlic
1.5 Tblspns ketchup
1 1/4 Tbslpns oyster sauce
1 Tblspn sugar
2 Tblspns white wine
1.5 Tblspns sesame oil
2 tspns finely chopped garlic
1 green onion, chopped
Add cornstarch to clean prawns with salt & pepper. Mix well. Set aside.
Mix the chili paste, ketchup, oyster sauce, sugar, white wine, and sesame oil. Heat a wok or skillet. Add the oil and garlic. (There was no mention of what oil or how much to add, so I used 2 tablespoons of peanut oil.) Stir fry for 30 seconds. Add the prawns and stir fry for 2 minutes over high heat. Add the sauce and continue cooking for an additional minute. Remove to serving platter and garnish with green onion.
