Ebi Chili: Spicy Shrimp
I came home late tonight, and my husband had been waiting for me hungry. His request was simple, “I want something very spicy”. Surprisingly, we had every ingredient for Ebi Chili in the house, so I went at it.
Even though the list of ingredients is long (shrimp, tomatoes, garlic, ginger, doubanjiang, spring onions, vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, potato starch, chili peppers), you basically just have to chop things, mix them together and cook them up: actually, it’s an easier recipe than you’d think. It was ready in about 20 minutes.
Granted, you could ask if Ebi Chili really belongs on this blog in the first place. After all, this is certainly Chinese food. Still, Japanese people love Chinese food, and cook it at home often. So even if it’s Chinese food, I still say it’s Japanese home cooking.
No recipe for this one at this time, I’m afraid: we were in a hurry and didn’t take photos of the cooking process.
