"Main Dish; Sweet and Sour Glazed Shrimp"

Serves 4 | Prep Time 15 minutes | Cook Time 5 mintues

Why I Love This Recipe

I choose this recipe because I like shrimp and I think I would enjoy it with the sweet and sour.


Ingredients You'll Need

1/4 cup Chinese plum sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 1/4 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined and tails removed
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon peanut oil
2 scallions, thinly sliced (white and green parts kept separate)
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 teaspoon finely chopped peeled fresh ginger
3 tablespoons unseasoned rice wine vinega


Directions

Stir together the plum sauce, ketchup, soy sauce and pepper flakes in a small bowl and set aside.


Sprinkle the shrimp with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.


Add the scallion whites, garlic and ginger to the skillet and cook, stirring constantly, until soft, about 1 minute. Add the vinegar and scrape up any brown bits that cling to the bottom of the skillet. Add the plum-ketchup sauce and bring to a simmer. Return the shrimp to the skillet along with the scallion greens and give the skillet a swirl to bring everything together. Divide among 4 plates and serve with white rice if using.
