Ingredients

1 kg Shrimp

50 grams Sugar

1 Onion (Finely diced. You can use yellow or sweet onions or even shallots if you like.)

4 cloves Garlic (Finely minced)

1 Chili Pepper

1 tsp Ginger (finely grated.)

1 tsp Red Chili Flakes

3 tbsp Dark Soy Sauce

1/2 tsp MSG (The best option here is Aji No Moto.)

1/2 tsp Black Pepper (Freshly cracked.)

50 ml Fish Sauce

Spring Onion (To taste.)

Cooking Oil

Directions

Use scissors to remove the head and legs from the shrimp. You can optionally remove the tail as well. Place them in a large bowl.

Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl except the cooking oil, fish sauce, and green onion. Give everything a thorough mix and place in the fridge for 15-30 minutes to marinade.

Set a pan on medium high heat and add oil. When shimmery reduce to medium and add in the shrimp along with all the marinade. Cook until the sauce is thickened and glossy and sticking to the shells. Add the fish sauce and green onion, toss the pan to coat, and turn off the heat.

Move shrimp to a serving dish and enjoy with rice or whatever side dish you prefer.
