DIRECTIONS

  • Thoroughly combine the lime juice, sugar, fish sauce or oyster sauce and sambal or chili paste in a jar or small bowl sauce (increase the amount of sambal if you’re a heat freak).
  • (Sambal is available in the condiment section of most Asian markets and in the specialty or gourmet section of some large supermarkets).
  • Pour this sauce into a 10-inch non-stick pan.
  • Turn the heat to medium high and bring to a boil.
  • Add the shrimp and reduce heat to medium low.
  • Cook until the shrimp is tender and the sauce thickens slightly, about 3 to 4 minutes (depending on size of shrimp) – if you like a thicker sauce, temporarily remove the cooked shrimp with a slotted spoon while the sauce continues to thicken, this will prevent the shrimp from becoming overcooked and rubbery.
  • Add cilantro to the sauce.
  • Taste and adjust the seasonings, pour over cooked rice or noodles.
