Garlic Shrimp

Slightly adapted from the Thai Kitchen Cookbook: The Essential Guide to Thai Cooking, edited by Cynthia Lawrence and published by Epicurean International.

  • 12 large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons sugar
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 sprigs of green onions, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, thinly sliced

In a bowl, mix together shrimp, garlic, fish sauce, pepper, and sugar. In a wok or skillet, heat oil over high heat until oil is hot. Add shrimp mixture into wok and stir fry quickly until shrimp turn orange-pink in color, about 1-2 minutes. Add green onions and ginger. Stir fry for an additional 30 seconds. Serve over rice, topped with cilantro if desired.
