Recipe for Malaysian Tamarind Shrimp

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup packed tamarind pulp
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon salad oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds shelled, deveined shrimp (15 to 24 per lb.), rinsed and well drained
  • 2 green onions, ends trimmed, cut into thin slivers

Cooking Directions

In a small bowl, mix tamarind pulp and 3/4 cup boiling water. Let stand until lukewarm, 8 to 10 minutes; rub pulp with your fingers to mix well and release from seeds.

Rub mixture through a strainer into a 10- to 12-inch frying pan; discard residue.

Add sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, and hot sauce to frying pan. Bring mixture to a boil over high heat and stir often until reduced to about 3/4 cup, about 5 minutes.

Scrape the reduced sauce back into a bowl (or, if making up to 1 week ahead, into a jar or refrigerator container; cover and chill).

Rinse the frying pan and wipe dry. Place over high heat and add the oil; when hot, add shrimp and stir until they begin to turn pink, about 2 minutes.

Pour into a bowl. Add the tamarind sauce to pan and stir until it''s boiling vigorously; return shrimp to pan and stir until opaque but still moist-looking in center of thickest part (cut to test), 3 to 6 minutes longer.

Spoon shrimp and sauce onto plates or into a bowl. Garnish with green onions.
