Shrimp Gambas in Garlic

01.13.11 by Jackie

While staying at my parents' during the holidays, I really enjoyed having giant wild gambas (large shrimp). We would simply sauté them in a lot of garlic and finish the dish with a little curly parsley. The large platter of seafood was a real treat.

The gambas were so sweet and yummy. My mouth waters just thinking about them. We had such a great time and great food while in Paris. Can't wait to go back and get more fresh gambas!

Vietnamese Ginger Shrimp Stir Fry Recipe Recipe

Tôm xào gừng is Vietnamese-style sautéed shrimp. As a little girl, Maman would make this dish very often whenever she needed to throw together a quick dinner, because shrimp cooks very fast. This particular preparation has touches of sweet and spicy in the form of ginger, lychee and chile. The ginger is used both grated and cut into small matchsticks. This is not traditional, but I also added lychee jam that I had in my pantry and finished the cooking by flambing the shrimp in lychee-flavored liqueur.

Cooking shrimp is always a delicate task. First, you have to make sure the shrimp are extremely fresh. Then, the cooking time has to be precise so as not to over-cook, otherwise they become horrible and very chewy. Lastly, the flavors that are paired with the shrimp should season them well without concealing the freshness of the seafood. This recipe definitely hits the mark, but don't just take my word for it!
