Chili Garlic Shrimp

Quick and easy dish that can be prepared in minutes. Large chunks of onion and chilies sauteed with shrimp in a sweet and spicy sauce. Serve as a starter, or as lunch over steamed rice, or as a filling inside a wrap. Either way it tastes wonderful.

25 large shrimps
1 large red onion
Red chili peppers as per your spice quotient
1 Green pepper
2 green onions
2 cloves of garlic crushed
Vegetable oil
Sauce (mix all together)
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
2 tbsp Sambal or any hot sauce
2 tbsp honey
2 tsp Sesame Oil
1 tbsp grated ginger
  1.  Peel and de-vein the shrimps, rinse and pat dry.  
  2. Cut large chunks of red onion and green pepper. Cut red chilies into rings and chop green onions fine (reserve some for garnish). 
  3. Take 2 tbsp oil in a wok on high heat and add garlic, green peppers and red onion chunks. Saute for a few a minute. Add green onion and red chili rings and toss for another 30 seconds. 
  4. Arrange the veggies on the side of the wok and add a tsp oil in the center. Add the shrimp and cook for 2 minutes per side. Now toss them with the sauteed veggies from the sides till shrimps are cooked through. 
  5. Add the sauce and toss for a bit till everything is coated with the sauce. Taste and adjust the flavors by adding more soy sauce and/or honey. Garnish with reserved green onion. Serve hot.
