shrimp in oyster sauce

category: main dish
servings: 4-6

again, i have to thank donna for sharing to me this recipe. i just revised it a bit to fit to my own tastebuds and that of kim... hehehe... i made it a bit spicy since kim is a spicy person. so, it's a combination of sweet, salty and spicy.

the outcome came out as i expected it to be although it would be much better if i used fresh and not frozen shrimp... and shrimp with skin on since it would be much tastier and juicier. as for the cooking, do not overcook the shrimp as it gets tough and rubbery when overcooked. kim liked it... yehey!!!... hehehe...

500 gm. frozen medium shrimp, thawed
1 cup sprite/7-up
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp. ginger, minced
1/2 cup oyster sauce
1/2 tsp. chili sauce
salt & freshly ground pepper
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. cooking oil

boil shrimp with sprite/7-up.

when the liquid has evaporated, add oil and butter. then add the garlic and ginger. fry until garlic has turned brown but not burned.

add the oyster sauce, chili sauce and season with salt and pepper. mix well until shrimp are fully coated with the sauce.

serve hot with rice.
