Vietnamese-Style Caramel Shrimp

4 Servings

The classic Vietnamese method of cooking pork, chicken or fatty fish in a savory-sweet caramel sauce produces deep, umami-rich flavors. In this recipe, we apply the technique to shrimp. We liked the dish when made with both shallots and garlic, as well as with ginger and lemon grass, so use all those ingredients if you have them on hand. Serve with steamed jasmine rice and a stir-fried vegetable to round out the meal.
