Vietnamese-Style Beer Battered Shrimp


Some of my favorite meals include two staple ingredients: Fish sauce and garlic. Anyone else with me?

I used to be scared of cooking with fish sauce because of the initial whiff you get when you open the bottle. But it tastes incredible and lends the most amazing umami flavor to dishes, and I've learned to love cooking with it. 

The other day, I was craving some Thai or Vietnamese food. I didn't have any protein ready to cook in my fridge, but I always have some Gorton's seafood in my freezer. So I made a quick sauce using only 4 ingredients and cooked up crispy, sticky and delicious shrimp using Gorton's Beer Battered Shrimp in under 20 minutes! 

I had some lettuce, carrots, leftover mung bean noodles and snap peas, cilantro and mint from my garden. So I created a salad to top with the shrimp for a full meal. But you can also eat the shrimp with rice and cooked veggies, or on its own!

Please let me know if you try this recipe and what you think!
