Hearty Shrimp In Chili Sauce With Potatoes

Even if you just have a small amount of shrimp, you can make a hearty dish by adding potatoes! The potatoes are cooked quickly in the microwave. This is an easy and delicious dish.

Ingredients: 3-4 servings

Potatoes
2 large
Shrimp
I used 12
Onion
1 large
☆ Grated garlic
1/2 teaspoon
☆ Grated ginger
1/2 teaspoon
☆ Doubanjiang
1 teaspoon
Sesame oil
2 tablespoons or more
Fresh parsley
To taste
Chili sauce ingredients:
● Ketchup
3 tablespoons
● Water
3 tablespoons
● Sake
1 tablespoon
●Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
● Katakuriko
1/2 tablespoon

Steps

1. Cut up the potatoes with the skins still on into bite sized pieces. Put in a heatproof dish, cover with plastic wrap and microwave until a skewer goes through easily. I microwaved them for 3 minutes at 1000w.
2. Cut the onion into 1 cm wide wedges. Cut a slit into the backs of the shrimp, and remove the digestive tract. Combine the ● ingredients.
3. Put the sesame oil and the ☆ ingredients in a frying pan and turn on the heat.
4. When it starts to smell fragrant add in the shrimp and cook on both sides. They don't have to be cooked through at this point.
5. Add the onion and stir fry until wilted.
6. When the onion and shrimp are cooked, add the potato pieces, stir fry quickly and turn off the heat.
7. Add the combined sauce ingredients, mix together and it's done.
8. Transfer to serving plates, sprinkle with parsley to taste, and enjoy.
