Crispy shrimps in sweet & spicy sauce

I just love shrimps. ¬†This recipe is an offshoot of Papa On’s shrimps in chili sauce version from my childhood.

For this, I decided to deep fry the shrimps instead of stir frying it.

here is the recipe:

Just season the shrimps with salt and pepper. Coat with flour and deep fry. For the sauce, sauté garlic and onions, then add a combi soy sauce, catsup and water mix. Add finger chilies, whole or sliced. Once thickened, pour over the crispy shrimps.
