Burnt Sugar Shrimp

READY IN: 47mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

This is a nice quick stir-fried shrimp with that sweet-and-salty taste I love. The shrimp can be used cold in a salad as well as serving hot with rice. Prep time includes marinating.

Very nice combination of flavours. I was liberal with the salt and next time I think I'd add a bit more brown sugar. Good combination. Thanks EdsGirlAngie
