Caramelized Shrimp with Lemongrass
Make This Recipe From Justine Kelly of The Slanted Door, San Francisco
Spicy caramelized shrimp is the recipe for our eighth installment of the Sous Chef Series. Justine Kelly, the chef de cuisine at Charles Phan's The Slanted Door in San Francisco, uses an unparalleled (not to mention easy to make and store) caramel sauce as a base for this flavorful shrimp dish. A classic Vietnamese meal, it's an exercise in harmony: The sweet palm sugar mingles with the intensity of the fish sauce, as fresh lemongrass, garlic and ginger further elevate the richly seasoned shrimp. The result is a dish layered with flavors that needs only a simple accompaniment of steamed rice to soak up the complex sauce.
