Tamarind Shrimp Recipe

Posted by manÜ

Everytime I go home to our province where seafood is so cheap, I make sure I get myself some roasted shrimp. This recipe has a new twist and I can't wait to try it!

about 2 lbs shrimp, shelled & deveined or with shell on
6 scallions ( green onions)

5 red chili peppers
3 Tablespoons peanut oil

1/2 cup tamarind and plum sauce

1 large handful cilantro leaves

For the tamarind /plum sauce:
4 1/2 ounces tamarind paste, without the seeds
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1/2 cup plum sauce
1/2 cup oyster sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar

In saucepan, water, tamarind paste, plum sauce, oyster sauce and sugar. Bring to a boil and combine well.

Set aside.

For the Shrimp:.
Cut the scallions into 1″ lengths and finely slice the chilies.

In large wok or large deep sauce pan, add oil. Let oil heat for a few seconds , then add shrimp. Cook shrimp for about 3 minutes then add chili’s and half of the scallions and toss well to combine ingredients. Add the tamarind and plum sauce.

Continue cooking shrimp for about another 5 minutes, or until shrimp are cooked (depending on how big the shrimp are). Plate shrimp and garnish with remaining chopped scallions, chili and/or cilantro leaves.
