Shrimp in lobster sauce is a popular Chinese restaurant menu item. But save yourself a trip to the take out and make this delicious classic at home. The name is a little misleading because in reality there is no lobster in the sauce at all. The sauce is based on ground pork instead. It is delicately tasting and very flavorful, made with just a handful of simple ingredients. This sauce recipe is very easy on the brain and comes together in just about 10 minutes.
This recipe is a wonderful addition to your Asian inspired dish repertoire. It is always a huge hit and is suitable for any occasion.
I recommend buying peeled and deveined shrimp for this dish as a convenient shortcut. The sauce starts with sautéing ground pork with boiling water in a wok. Make sure to drain the pork through a mesh strainer for s cleaner, clearer sauce as an extra step in creating the sauce.Make the cornstarch slurry by mixing it with water and add it a little bit at tie to be able to control the consistency of the sauce. If it gets a little too thin add some chicken stock, or more slurry if it is too thin.
This dish is an amazing homemade alternative to a Chinese take out. It is healthy, easy to make and simply phenomenal. Tastes wonderful when served over white or brown rice.
