Shrimp in Garlic Sauce ( Koa Rad Nha Guong Sauce Garthream )


I'm filling a few holes in my recipe lists, and I can't believe I never did this recipe! It's shrimp in garlic sauce, the only unusual thing is the butter, which is not traditional Thai, but I think it softens the flavours.

150 gms Shrimp
5 Garlic Cloves
1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Oyster Sauce
1 Teaspoon Butter
1 Tablespoon Oil
1 Tablespoon Corn Flour
100 ml water

1. Clean the shrimps, (and cut out the black thread down the back).
2. Peel and chop the garlic finely, fry it in the oil for just a few seconds to release the smell.
3. Add butter and all the sauces and stir fry them for a minute, then add the shrimp, and 30 seconds just to cook them (they don't take long).
4. Mix the corn flour and water and add to the pan. Cook for a further minute to let the sauce thicken.
