Shrimps are beautifully shaped little sea creatures , their almost translucent body have always fascinated me especially when I see them in hopping around in aquarium tanks at the restaurants. Their long feelers are like fine wavering magic wands . They reminds me of water dancers :p When I see fresh shrimps in the market, I will not hesitate to purchase some back. Buy first and think what to do with them later ! I can consult my cookbooks for ideas :p There are many ways to cook shrimps but I prefer to cook it simple so that you can savor its natural sweet and flavor of fresh seawater...mmmm yummy one of my favorite seafood which I can only afford to indulge in once in a blue moon :p Flavorsome on the outside and tasty natural sweetness and flavor of the sea on the inside. What a wonderful way to eat a shrimp..Two taste in one ! :p
I usually pan fried them in two tbsp of grapeseed oil and some chopped garlic and bird eye chillies , with the shrimps marinated in light soy sauce, a sprinkle of sugar and a dash of pepper. When the shrimps has turned color, it is cooked, sprinkle in toasted sesame seeds and mint leaves. Dish up and served hot with a bowl of piping hot rice...mmmm delicious !
I leave the shell on to keep its moistness while it is being pan fried :)
and so that it won't shrink in size too drastically :p
.you want a piece of this scrumptious-ness ? :))
I can have the whole dish all to myself but I think it is
not advisable to choke up my arteries at this moment lol!
So I shared with the
wild boar Daddy some...
divided by two , the arteries are spared the agony !
I love shrimps cooked this way....so flavorsome on the outside
and yet get to taste the natural sweetness of the shrimps on
the inside......mmmmmm it taste better than those served
at some restaurants ! yup self praise is no praise
but I am speaking the truth....
nothing but the truth ! LOL!
