Garlic Sauteed Shrimps In Sizzled Light Soy Sauce

Garlic and light soy sauce plays an important part in this cooking.  Instead of cooking them in curry or tomyam style like I normally do, I cooked them in this simple sauce and it turned out  flavorful with the shrimps coated with a sauce to die for.  My mom used to cook this dish for us when my siblings and I were young and I remembered the whole house filled with the beautiful aroma of sauteed garlicy shrimps and the smoked smell of sizzled soy sauce ! For busy working Momsies , this is easy to prepare and would please everyone in the family :)

I know Jo loves it cooked this way , for she finished the whole plate of shrimps all by herself . Licking the fragrant sauce off the shell.......the best part of the shrimp is the head :))) but the most deadly, for it has the highest content of cholesterol value. But for the younger people , they can indulge in them as much as they like :) , for me, I can only see but cannot was far worse than drooling at the dish from the screen ! At least from the screen one can't smell the food , but looking at it real and the saliva inducing aroma was really a mental torture for me :p  I won't be taking seafood for awhile .....I had been on a seafood diet for the last few weeks and it is time to stop partaking these arteries or I will go to hell or heaven sooner :pp

Those of you who are in the same boat like me , trying to abstain from this sinful indulgence , can  meanwhile just drool at the photos ...healthier to lick them off the screen :))



screen licking good for me 
but finger licking good for Jo !!!!
