Shrimp with Spicy Garlic SauceIf I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times – we eat our fair share of shrimp in this house. In season, they’re cheaper than chicken – so how can you argue with that? I saw this recipe on Pinterest a few months ago, but always passed over it when making my menu plan for the week. Then Tracey posted it, bringing it to my fore thoughts, and I immediately added it to our menu.

I figured it would be super spicy – but it wasn’t, it was just right. We loved it, and so did the boys. I wasn’t sure they’d be able to eat it, but they eat what we eat, and it wasn’t their first time being introduced to something with a little bit of heat. The original recipe calls for chili sauce, which is like Sriracha. But, I used chili paste in a jar – which is like a chunky version of the infamous rooster bottle. I liked the little pieces of chili in the sauce, but Sriracha would work just fine as well.

We will definitely be making this one again, and again. Might throw some veggies in with the shrimp next time around – maybe some snow peas, perhaps? The sauce was so good, I’m looking forward to trying it with other proteins in the future as well. Take heed, and don’t pass this one over for months like I did!

    Oh I love shrimps so much they are generally very expensive in Hungary. Next time I find an acceptable offer I’ll definitely go with this recipe though!

    This was so quick, so easy and so good! Next time I will use a bit more shrimp. My son asked “why didn’t you make enough?”
