Shrimp in Lobster Sauce

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by ATM 67

A friend from work was born in Hong Kong. He went to live with his Master at the age of four. He accepts that learning, and now teaching, kung fu is his lot in life. However, his Godfather operated an open air "kitchen" in downtown Hong Kong. Cooking became my friend's passion. This is the recipe he gave me when I asked him how to make Shrimp in Lobster Sauce. **Doubling the recipe will triple the cook time, but not affect the quality of the dish.

I made this dish and doubled the sauce. It ended up being very similar to the recipe in the Chinese restaurants. I marinaded the shrimps a little longer about 90 minutes which brought out the flavors of the shrimp and white pepper. Thanks for the recipe!
