Thai Food Recipe: Shrimp and Cashew Nuts Stir Fry

Prepare Pad Thai sauce: For 2 servings

2 big tbsp. of palm sugar
3 tbsp. concentrated tamarind juice
3 tbsp. fish sauce
2 tbsp. oyster sauce

Prepare:

10 big shrimps (cooked)
1/2 cup baby corn (cut whichever way you like)
1/2 cup sliced onion
1/2 cup scallions (cut 1 inch)
1/2 cup mushrooms ( cut half)

Cooking instructions:

1. Heat the pan and add palm sugar, fish sauce, tamarind juice, oyster sauce and a little bit of water. Now use medium or low heat to let the sauce boil and get thick. Keep stirring. Make sure you don’t burn the sauce.

Now remove the sauce from the stove, we only need 5 tbsp of it. Save the rest for next time use. 🙂

2. Heat the pan and pour in 1 tbsp of vegetable oil, then add garlic and minced coriander root. When the garlic smells aromatic, add the vegetables that take more time to be cooked, first – baby corn, mushroom. Add 5 tbsp of Pad Thai sauce. Then add the rest of the ingredients. Cook for 1-2 minutes.

3. Add onion, sweet pepper, string bean, cooked shrimps  and scallions. Add fish sauce, oyster sauce, soy sauce. Quickly stir for 10-15 seconds. Turn off the stove. 🙂

Don’t forget the cashew nuts! Add them now and mix well!

4. Serve with fragrant Jasmine rice from Thailand!
