1-2 tablespoons of oil

500-700 shrimp(peeled, deveined, leave the tails intact)

5-6 large cloves of Garlic finely grated

1 teaspoon of ground Pepper

1 tablespoon of Fish sauce

1/2 tablespoons of water

3-4 scallions cut into required size

1 teaspoon of chilli flecks(optional)

Instructions

Wash, clean, devein all the prawns, remove head and shell while keeping the tail intact.

Place pan over medium heat, let the pan heat and pour in the oil.

Place the same skillet over low heat, pour in the fish sauce, water with pepper and sugar, let the ingredients simmer for 2-5 minutes over medium-fire. simmer until the sugar dissolves, turning the liquid into a semi-thick syrup. check for seasoning, adding salt, sugar or fish sauce to your taste.

Once the sauce is done, add the scallions to the stir-fry and toss everything together. 2-3 minutes over medium heat.

Add the cooked prawns to the stir-fry and combine all the ingredients. 2-3 minutes over low fire

Check if the seasonings are as you require, serve warm.
