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.
Ingredients for 2 servings :
250 grams frozen or fresh shrimp (peeled)
1 spring onion (chopped into 1 cm pieces)
1 red chilly (seeded and chopped)
1 onion (chopped)
1 clove of garlic (crushed)
200 g pineapple (chopped into small blocks)
4 tablespoons sweet & sour sauce
4 tsp cooking oil
½ tsp white pepper
1 tsp sugar
½ tsp salt
50 ml water
1 tsp corn flour ( dissolved in a small bowl with a little bit of water)
How to cook Udang Asam Manis:
- Heat cooking oil in a pan until meadium heat, add garlic and onion and stir until fragrant.
- Add chilly and the peeled shrimp into the pan and stir-fry until the color of the shrimp changes (they become pink).
- Add pineapple, sauce, water, salt, pepper and sugar. When it is boiling add the (dissolved) corn flour, stir it evenly until the sauce thickens a bit.
Remove from the stove and serve with rice and some cucumber slices or other veggies. Enjoy!
