I believe this is actually a Cajun dish, but it’s something that my mom makes it and puts an Asian spin on it. It sounds weird and a little gross, but it’s a really nice sweet and spicy dish. *edit: I think it is actually Asian after all.
Unfortunately, my cooking abilities don’t usually focus on measuring, so my instructions are a little vague.
- Shrimp (deveined, try and separate, but do not remove shells – this will help increase the flavor absorption)
- Garlic, chopped
- Ginger, sliced
- Scallions, cut into thirds
- Sriracha sauce (optional)
- Jalapeno, chopped (optional)
Heat some oil a pan. Add garlic, and ginger to brown. Add scallions and shrimp. Squeeze enough ketchup to cover shrimp. Squeeze sriracha to taste. Add jalapeno last.
