Yield: 2 – 3 servings
Time: 20 minutes


1 lb. shelled and deveined SSP shrimp, tail-on
2 tablespoons cooking oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
Chopped scallions
White sesame

Sweet and Sour Sauce:
3 tablespoons ketchup
1 teaspoon chili sauce like Sriracha (optional)
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon cornstarch


Step 1
Rinse and drain the shrimp, pat dry with paper towels and set aside.

Step 2
Mix all the ingredients for the Sweet and Sour Sauce together. Stir to combine well. Set aside.

Step 3
Heat up a skillet with the cooking oil on high heat. When it’s heated, add the garlic and stir fry until the garlic turns light brown. Add in the shrimp, stir fry until the surface turns white. Add in the Sweet and Sour Sauce and let cook for 1 minute, or until the shrimp is cooked through. Add more water to loosen the Sauce if it dries up or becomes too thick.
