Chili Shrimp with Basil

Prep Time: Minutes
Cook Time: Minutes
Serves:4 Servings

Nutritional Information

Spicy juicy shrimp stir fried in a tasty fish sauce and fresh chopped basil.


  • 1 lb Shrimp (medium)
  • Salt
  • 1/2 Sweet Red Pepper
  • 8 Chives
  • 2 tbsp Unsalted Roasted Peanuts
  • 2 tbsp Fish Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Lime Juice
  • 2 tbsp Water
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Chinese Chili Sauce
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (finely minced)
  • 2 tbsp Basil (chopped)


  • 1. Advance Preparation: Shell the shrimp, then divide by cutting along the top of the curve, starting at the tail and making a progressively deeper cut so the knife nearly cuts through the shrimp at the thick end. Rinse out the vein. Bring a large amount of lightly salted water to a rapid boil and add the shrimp. Cook until shrimp are done, between 1 and 2 minutes. To test, cut a shrimp in half; it should be white in the center. Transfer the shrimp immediately to a bowl of ice water to cool. When chilled, drain and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • 2. Mince and place in separate containers the red pepper and chives. Finely chop the peanuts in a food processor and set aside. Combine the sauce ingredients and mix well.
  • 3. Last - Minute Preparation: Toss the shrimp with the sauce. Put in a decorative bowl and place the bowl in crushed ice. Sprinkle the shrimp with the red pepper, chives and peanuts. Serve at once.
