Sweet and Spicy Thai Sauce
- 1/2 cup rice vinegar
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 5-7 cloves of garlic minced/chopped finely
- 4-5 Thai chilis seeds removed, chopped
- 2 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1 tbsp cornstarch + 1 tbsp water to make a slurry
Shrimp Meal Prep
- 2 bags Marina Del Rey’s Wild Caught Argentinian Shrimp (680 grams)
- 300 grams stir fry noodles
- 2 carrots spiralized
- 4-5 tbsp sweet and spicy Thai sauce
How To Make The Sauce:
In a small pot, add all your ingredients expect for the cornstarch slurry and bring it to a boil. Let the mixture simmer for 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add in the cornstarch slurry and continue to let the mixture simmer until it has thickened. The sauce will continue to thicken once it’s cooling so be sure to not let it cook down too much.
Store in an airtight container and in the fridge once it has cooled down for up to two weeks.
Shrimp Meal Prep
Following the instructions on the bag of the shrimp, soak the shrimp in cold water for ten minutes and then let it drain for two.
While the shrimp was soaking and draining, cook your stir-fry noodles. I used 3 minute chow mein noodles. In a large hot pan, added a tbsp of oil, a tbsp of soy sauce, and stir fried it along with some spiralized carrots. Optional: you can also stir fry the noodles in the sweet and spicy thai chili sauce as well to add more heat to the overall dish.
Once the noodles are done and set aside, add the sweet and spicy Thai chili sauce into the hot pan and placed my shrimp into the pan. Careful not to overcrowd the pan. Sauté the shrimp until pink and opaque.
Serve the shrimp together with the noodles and a side of green beans if desired.
