“I grew up on white rice, gravy and gumbo. I had never heard of soy sauce until I was a young adult and had gone to work. Jasmine rice...just ate it for the first time last year. Now I have a refrigerator and pantry stocked with sambal oelek, sriracha, oyster and fish sauce. I am testimony to adventure and change. Now go buy some oyster and fish sauce and try the recipe! Note: This is a glazed shrimp recipe, do not expect an abundant amount of sauce.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make the marinade by combining in a mixing bowl the oyster sauce, soy sauce, fish sauce, brown sugar, garlic, lime juice, and chili. Stir well. Place shrimp in the marinade and stir well to coat; set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a wok or frying pan. When hot, add the shrimp along with the marinade. Stir-fry 2-3 minutes or until shrimp are pink. They will become lightly browned from the sauce. (Avoid overcooking or shrimp will turn rubbery.).
  3. Remove to a serving dish and sprinkle on top cilantro. Serve with a side of jasmine rice.
