  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) fi sh sauce
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) sugar
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • *Caramel Base*
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) sugar
  • ½ cup (125 mL) water
  • *Sauce*
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) chopped garlic
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) fi sh sauce

Instructions

  1. Season shrimp with lime juice, fish sauce, sugar and pepper. Reserve.
  2. Add sugar and ¼ cup (50 mL) water to heavy pot over medium heat. Heat slowly until it begins to caramelize, about 5 minutes. When caramel is a medium-brown, carefully stir in remaining water and cook for 1 minute longer or until sauce is thickened. Stir in oil, garlic, fi sh sauce, lime juice, lime rind, chili sauce and sugar, and return to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes or until sauce has thickened and flavours have combined. Set aside.
  3. Place shrimp on lemon grass or wooden skewers, skewering shrimp in 2 places to prevent them turning around. Put about 3 on each skewer.
  4. Preheat grill to high.
  5. Grill shrimp for 2 minutes a side or until pink and curled. Let cool to room temperature.
  6. Serve shrimp with lettuce and sauce for dipping.
