Sweet and Spicy Shrimps

Sweet and Spicy Shrimps

Spring break is coming up soon…are you going anywhere?

I wish that I can just pack my bags and travel the world. However, when kids arrive in our life, some things such as traveling are just not possible all the time.

I travel through the world with the food that I cook. Well, I know, it is really not even close to a real trip but hey I will take it!

I connect with food very well, indeed. Dieting and losing weight not so much. I simply cannot say “no” to many of my favorite dishes.

Now that I think about it everything is my favorite!   This time I updated my old recipe, recreated just like I redesigned my blog as you can see.

It is Korean cuisine inspired— I have to feel that you are not shocked! I do add gochujang in most of my dishes, or better said in my plate.

My lovely husband is not a huge fan of spicy food, do not get me wrong he can eat spicily but not overly like me, so I do make extremely spicy portion just for myself.

This is a great marinade for shrimps or any meat instead of the shrimps. You can sear either on the grill or in the pan like I did until it forms a nice caramelized crust.

It is so good, and not even that hot, so that’s why I added in the pan more gochujang and brushed these beauties with the glaze which is of course optional. It was so lip-smacking delicious. Sweet, spicy, garlicky… mmm that good!
