I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Sweet and Sour Glazed Shrimp

This fakeout takeout has the perfect blend of sweet and sour and is another recipe ready in under 30 minutes!

1 tbsp avocado oil
3/4 lb shrimp, we used size 16/20
salt and pepper
2 tbsps Chinese plum sauce
2 tbsps ketchup
1 tsp soya sauce
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp finely chopped onion
2 tbsps finely chopped sweet red pepper
2 tsps minced garlic
1 tsp minced ginger
1 1/2 tbsps rice wine vinegar

Clean and prepare the shrimp, then salt and pepper them and set aside for a minute. Combine the plum sauce, ketchup, soya sauce and red pepper flakes.

Heat oil in a skillet on medium heat. Add the shrimp and cook until they turn pink on all sides, about 2-3 minutes. Remove to a plate.

To the same skillet add the onion, sweet red pepper, garlic and ginger and cook 1 minute. Add the rice wine vinegar to de-glaze the pan, then add the sauce and bring to a simmer.

Return the shrimp to the pan and toss together to coat. Then ready to serve over rice.

Serves 2-3
