“Spicy large shrimps cooked in beer which my mom makes during weekends.”

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
  • 2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes, or to taste
  • 3/4 cup beer
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 3 green onions, chopped

Directions

  1. Heat canola oil in a large skillet over high heat, and cook and stir onion, garlic, and ginger just until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add the shrimp, salt, and black pepper, and cook and stir until the shrimp is slightly pink, about 5 minutes. Stir in the beer, ketchup, and sugar, and bring the sauce to a boil.
  2. Dissolve the cornstarch in the water, and stir into the boiling sauce.
