WW #31: Sweet and Sour Shrimp

This is Camaron Rebosado, shrimps dipped in batter then deep fried.  Serve with hot rice and sweet chili sauce and you’re pretty much a done deal.

Simple, isn’t it!  But if you want to go the extra mile, you can transform the exact same dish above into this…

…Sweet and Sour Shrimp.  That’s quite a nice trick don’t you think?  Only, it takes more than just a snap of the fingers.  :D  It looks way better than the Sweet and Sour Fish I made a while back.  Maybe because this time, the red and green peppers were cut properly.

To make the Sweet and Sour Shrimp, I used the same recipe for the Sweet and Sour Fish.  For the batter, I normally use my Camaron Rebosado batter mix.  But this time, I found what I believe is a better batter mix.  And I didn’t even have to use eggs. *wink*

Without further ado, here’s the recipe:

Sweet and Sour Sauce

2 carrots, thinly sliced diagonally

1/2 c water

1 – 1 1/2 lbs large shrimps

1/2 c packed brown sugar

1/3 c vinegar

2 tbsp cornstarch

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 can (13 1/2 oz)pineapple chunks

1 green bell pepper, chopped

1 red bell pepper, chopped

Shrimp Batter

3/4 c water

2/3 c flour

1 1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

* Heat carrots and water to boiling.  Cover and cook until crisp tender (about 8-10 minutes).

* In a saucepan, mix brown sugar, vinegar, cornstarch and soy sauce.

* Stir in carrots (with liquid), pineapple (with liquid), and the green and red bell peppers.

* Heat to boiling, stirring constantly.  Boil and stir for 1 minute then keep warm.

* Dip shrimps into batter with tongs then fry a few pieces at a time until golden brown.  Drain on paper towels.

* Arrange the shrimps on a platter.

* Pour the sauce over the shrimps.  Serve with hot rice.

Next time I whip up this dish, I might just consider taking an appetite suppressant to avoid over eating! Kidding. :D

I have one more WW entry: Playing Catch at the Pumpkin Patch.

Happy Wednesday! :)
