Pan fried garlic shrimp
Guō chǎo dàsuàn xiā
I’ve never met a shrimp I didn’t like. It doesn’t matter if you steam, sautéed, fry, mixed into a pasta or salad, or serve it raw; it’s all good to me. However, it wasn’t until I tried my friend Rachael’s Pan Fried Garlic Shrimp recipe, that I found my new favorite way of enjoying this delicious little seafood. It’s so divine that if my family hadn’t come home for dinner, I would have happily devoured the entire pound of shrimp all by myself.
Shrimp is a very popular ingredient used in Chinese cooking. Since the 7th century up until today, shrimp was and is the main ingredient used in most Chinese cuisine. The thing I love most about Rachael’s style of Chinese cooking, including this shrimp recipe, is that it’s quick, simple, only uses a few healthy ingredients, and explodes with an immense flavor all without losing the shrimp’s original taste. Try this shrimp with Rachael’s Secret Sauce recipe for an extra amazing seafood experience!
Rachael prepares her shrimp with the shells on. However, I prefer to use de-veined shrimp with no shells on them, so it is easier to eat without the work of peeling them. Either way, this recipe tops the list of my favorite way to prepare and enjoy what the Chinese call Xiā, better known to us as shrimp.
