Shrimp & Sauce

A few days ago, a friend gave me a recipe that sounded interesting. I decided to give it a shot...

Shrimp, Onions, and Bell Peppers, in a Sauce


  • 1 package shrimp (around 350g, I think) - cooked, peeled, and de-tailed
  • 2 Bell Peppers (Red, Yellow)
  • 1 Medium Onion
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 2-3 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp Sambal Oelak (chili garlic sauce)
  • 1-1.5 tsp garlic paste
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • Soy Sauce
  • Barbecue Sauce
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  • Melt the butter in a dish. Marinate the shrimps in the butter
  • Heat oil in a wok, medium heat. Add onions, garlic, and sambal oelak. Sauteed for a bit.
  • Add garlic paste, salt, pepper, bell peppers, soy sauce and garlic sauce. (I don't have exact measurements for the latter two, maybe 1/4-1/3 cup each...)
  • Let the sauce and veggies cook for a while.
  • Once the sauce starts to bubble, add the shrimp to the wok. Toss well. Set stove to low-medium heat.
  • Serve! I made mine with spaghetti!
