Happy Friday!

I don't want the week to end without coming up with a blog post. Although I may have no stories or Wikepedia-usque information to share with you (like usual), I want to make up for it by posting two easy shrimp recipes.  


Ok great! So here we go:

Shrimp and Tofu in  Spicy Ginger Broth

2 lb shrimp
1 tsp sriracha
1 cup shrimp broth (Boil the shrimp heads, crush the head or use an Osterizer, then drain)
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
2 tbsp cooking oil
fish sauce or salt to taste
Tofu, sliced
1 pc egg

In a pan saute garlic and onions and ginger.  Add the shrimps and stir.  Wait until the color of the shrimp changes to red-orange.  Add broth and let it simmer.  Add tofu.  Season to taste with fish sauce or salt.  Add more ginger.  Break the egg on the broth and give it a quick stir... and voila, it's done!

Chili Shrimp
2-3 lbs of shrimp
5 tbsp oyster sauce
3 tbsp banana ketchup
1 1/2 sriracha
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp butter
1 medium onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 inch ginger, sliced
1 tbsp cooking oil

In a big wok, melt the butter.  Saute the garlic and onions and ginger. Add oyster sauce, ketchup, sriracha and brown sugar.  When the sauce is mixed thoroughly, add the shrimp.  Cook for another 10 minutes. ,, and you are ready to "wow" you family and friends in no time!

Happy Friday!

    Food Jaunts:
    Try the chili crabs or the chili shrimp... the ingredients are almost the same but they taste different. good luck!


  6. You ALWAYS present food very beautifully and I noticed all my Filipino food bloggers are the same way! I must learn it from you guys. I love the simple shrimp & tofu recipe here. Sounds awesome!

  7. As always, I love all your dishes, Malou, but the shrimp dish really stands out as one of my very favorites from you. Love the recipe, and the photos, as well:DDD

  8. hello! what is sriracha? is it available in the philippines?

  9. hello! what is sriracha? is it available in the philippines?

  10. I love the vibrant color of the shrimp, Malou! That happens when you have good lighting. Good job!

  11. Isn't it funny how something common in one culture can be unbelievably exotic in another?
    I had to read several times the direction for squishing the shrimp heads, etc. as that was never the part of my upbringing even though I diligently save shells of all the sea creatures for stock).
    The dish looks lovely and not too challenging, even for the uninitiated:)

  12. This looks wonderful Malou! Fitting coz it's been hard finding recipes for shrimps that my husband will like. Since both are spicy, I'm sure he'll enjoy these. :)

  13. I love love shrimp and tofu in soup! Even better, you put in my favorite gingery broth! Thanks for sharing this, Malou! As alwasy, another one of your classics!

  14. These both look and sound amazing Malou! Gorgeous flavors all around :)

  15. Holy moly! I have so been craving dishes like this...I just made a chili-garlic shrimp dish but still can't get enough. I LOVE your broth. Actually just saw banana ketchup at the store today and should have bought it!!
    Hope you're doing well Malou!

  16. You truly make shrimp sing! I am already in love with the ginger broth - wish I could be sipping this now. Both make me grateful for the shrimp in my fridge. Just one problem - which to do first?

  17. This dish sounds delicious. I am following your blog to learn more! Patsy

  18. Shrimp is my favorite seafood....and i really love to know and learn more recipe about shrimp.
