Chinese Steamed Shrimp

Chinese boiled shrimp is a deliciously simple recipe. I paired this simple boiled shrimp with a chili soy sauce. The spiciness of the chili soy sauce gives the shrimp th kick that makes it so irresistible and addicting. 


  1. 1 lb fresh shrimp 
  2. 2 Thai chilis 
  3. 2 tbspSoy sauce 
  4. 1 tbsp Vegetable oil 


  1. Boil a pot of water on medium heat 
  2. Slice and deseed the Thai chilis 
  3. Boil a second pot on high heat and add oil. Once oil is steaming hot from the pot, pour hot oil over Thai chilis in a bowl and add soy sauce. 
  4. Once water is boiled, add shrimp to pot and cook. Depending on size of shrimp, cook times can vary. Once shrimp turns to reddish orange color, shrimp is cooked. 
  5. Drain shrimp is colander and serve with Thai chili sauce.
