These shrimps are sticky, sweet and spicy at the same time. What else do you want? If it’s up to us, that’s not much more. A delicious sauce that you should definitely try!

First, we make a dry rub where we season the shrimp with. The sauce is a simple mixture of several ingredients, including lemongrass. The lemongrass adds a fresh touch to the sauce.

We made this dish on the barbecue in a cast iron pan. If you don’t have that, you can also fry those shrimps in a pan on the stove.
