Kung Pao Shrimp is a spicy Chinese shrimp dish made from prawns or medium size shrimps. This dish is similar to the famed Kung Pao Chicken although some cooking procedure varies. The Kung Pao sauce gives life and flavor to this dish. Ingredients such as soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, cornstarch, sugar, and water are necessary for you to be able to make your own homemade Kung Pao sauce.
This is one of my favorite Asian dishes because of its unique flavor and spice. I like the kick of the dried chilies and the crunchy texture of the peanuts. In my opinion, these ingredients bring more value to the dish.
The best way to eat this dish is to top it over hot steamed rice. The rice help reduce the spice and it also balances the flavor. If you are looking for more taste and texture, eating this with fried rice would be a good idea. Before making your fried rice, make sure to check out some of our tips for best results.
