Special Cooking Equipment Used
Step 1: First we need to make our paste. Add 1 tbsp of finely chopped coriander stalks and 3 chopped garlic cloves to a mortar and pestle, and crush into a paste, then add 1/2 teaspoon of pepper, and mix in with the paste.
Step 2: Now pour 1/4 cup of corn flour onto a plate, and coat your shrimp with the flour. Repeat until all of the shrimp is coated in corn flour.
Step 3: Deep fry the shrimp for about 1 to 2 minutes just until they have a crispy coating.
Step 4: In a separate wok or pan, heat about 2 tbsp of cooking oil on a high heat. Then add the paste that we made earlier to the pan, briefly fry it for a few seconds, then add the shrimp, 2 teaspoons of sugar and 1 1/2 tbsp of fish sauce to the pan and mix and fry for about 1 to 2 minutes, and serve with steamed jasmine rice.
