DAPOER AISAH: Udang Asam Manis (Sweet & Sour Shrimps) Recipe

By: Aisah Wolfard


This recipe for udang asam manis is quick, easy and very tasty. Sweet and sour shrimp are great accompanied with steamed rice and a quick spinach stir fry or a fresh cucumber salad. You can use any kind of shrimp, but the larger ones (for example tiger prawns) give more bite and don’t ‘drown’ in the sauce.
