DIRECTIONS

  • Precook the shrimp in a skillet over medium heat until BARELY pink. Let cool and peel, set aside for later.
  • In a large skillet, mix the olive oil and butter and heat until the butter has melted. Stir in the garlic, scallions, and ginger and make sure everything is coated evenly.
  • Sauté over medium-low heat until the garlic and scallions are soft but not brown.
  • Stir in the Rum, and lime juice. Cook for one minute, and then add the Tabasco sauce, garlic pepper, and coconut milk, stirring well.
  • Reduce heat and cook for two minutes. Meanwhile combine the cornstarch with the 2 tablespoons of water and mix to make a paste. When you are done combine the cornstarch mixture to the sauce and stir well.
  • Add the shrimp and cook for a minute or two until the sauce slightly thickens. Serve right away over white rice, and enjoy!
  • (serves 4 as a side dish).
