Chili Pickle Bamboo Shrimp

Chili Pickle Bamboo Shrimp 1

Quite a while ago, I did a ‘Foodstuff’s post featuring Chili Pickled Bamboo Shoots and followed this with a number of different recipes featuring the condiment. Today’s recipe was designed to test out an entirely different brand of the same product that I happened to pick up in Ottawa recently …

Unlike the previous brand, which came in a jar, this one is packaged in a plastic bag, which, I have to say, I don’t like as much. The flavor of these is actually very nice (albeit with less of a ‘fermented’ aroma and taste as the jarred variety) and the texture is excellent. My only complaint, other than the packaging, is the fact that the strips of bamboo are cut very irregularly with some pieces being long, narrow and thick, and others very wide and thin.

The Ingredients

  • 1/2lb. Medium Shrimp;
  • 1 cup Chili Pickled Bamboo Shoot slices;
  • 1 cup baby Cucumber, cut on the bias in thickish slices;
  • 1 tbsp. minced Garlic;
  • 1 tsp. Sugar;
  • 1 tbsp. Rice Vinegar;
  • 1 pinch each of Salt and White Pepper;
  • 2 tbsp. Soy Sauce.

The Method

Heat a tablespoon or so of oil in a pan over moderate heat and briefly sauté the shrimp until they turn pink. Season with the salt and pepper and remove to a separate bowl.

Add a little more oil to the pan, if necessary, and fry the garlic until the aroma arises and then add in the cumber slices. Stir in the sugar and sauté until the slices just begin to soften.

Add the bamboo shoots along with the vinegar and when all is hot, add in the shrimp and the soy sauce. Sauté a minute or so longer and then serve immediately…
