If I had a menu, the sauce for this shrimp would definitely be my “secret sauce!” Just calling it that makes it so much more alluring, doesn’t it?!
Here’s the deal. . . this sauce has essentially three ingredients, takes about two minutes to prepare, and it tastes incredibly special.
The bits of garlic become almost candy-like in the spicy chili paste — and the way it all caramelizes with the shrimp as it’s quickly sautéed, creates a brilliantly sweet spiciness that’s absolutely divine!
This is a great addition to Pad Thai, which we’re making tomorrow — and it’s amazing over rice, or on it’s own as an appetizer! Have a few friends over this weekend and serve it any way you’d like!
