If you've known me from before (6 years ago or more), you'll never believe yourself that now I can cook (though not a pro one yet). Once, when I chatted with one of my friend in Indonesia said that I'm possessed by an evil. Not just an ordinary evil but a cooking master one *LOL*
I learn how to cook here by reading recipe online. At first I still counted on instant spices, but after sometimes, I said goodbye too them (but not to Indonesian instant noodle *LOL*). I even started to create my own recipe. Some of them are tested and proved as delicious by my mom (for me she is the best cooker in the world - I believe every kid has the same thought about their mom).
The recipe below I created when I just came from home after one month holiday in Southern Germany (at that time my better half was doing his internship there) and saw that I had a bottle of BBQ sauce that would be expired soon. Directly I thought about mixing it with my homemade garlic sauce.
Since the result was good, I want to share it with all my fellow foodie blogger by submitting the recipe to Culinary Round-up Event with Original Recipes as the theme. This event hosted by Lore. To read more about the event (the deadline is on July 13th, 2008), please visit this link.
200 gr shrimps, shell intact, deveined, cleaned
3 tbsp ready to use BBQ sauce
2 tbsp homemade garlic sauce (the recipe will be posted later)
1 medium size onion, ring sliced
3 red chilies, angle sliced
Salt, pepper and sugar as needed
Lime juice as needed
Dried parsley (using fresh better)
1. Mix BBQ sauce and garlic sauce in a bowl. Add shrimps and mix well. Let it stand for 15 minutes.
2. Heat oil in a skillet. Sauté onion and red chilies until wilted and fragrant. Fold in shrimps mixture. Cook over moderate heat until set.
3. Season with salt, pepper and sugar. Drizzle with lime juice. Stir for a while and remove from the heat.
4. Place in a dish ware and garnish with dried parsley. Ready to serve with steamed rice.
Simple and easy right ;)
