“This recipe tastes just like it came from a restaurant! I found this on the Thai Kitchen website. The sauce can be made to suit your taste. The best part is that it's simple but impressive (and next-day leftovers taste great too!).”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large wok or skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium high heat.
  2. Add the garlic and onion and stir-fry for 30 seconds.
  3. Add the brown sugar, roasted red chili paste and fish sauce and continue stir-frying for 2 to 3 minutes, until the onion starts to wilt and soften. (Tip: start with the minimum amounts of these 3 ingredients and add more to taste. I like mine with more brown sugar and 1/2 Tbsp more chili paste).
  4. Add the peppers and peas and cook for 3 minutes.
  5. Add the shrimp and cook until the shrimp have turned orange-pink in color and are cooked through, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  6. If the sauce needs thickening, combine cornstarch and chicken broth or water and add to wok. Cook until thick and bubbly.
  7. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds and serve with hot jasmine rice.
