A quick and easy stir-fry dish
Ingredients
  • 250g boneless pork belly, sliced thinly
  • 250g shrimp, heads removed, peeled
  • 1.5 teaspoon sugar
  • 1.5 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1.5 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 shallot, diced
Instructions
  1. Marinate the pork belly, the sugar and the fish sauce for 5 minutes.
  2. In a wok (or frying pan) on high heat, put the pork belly and the marinade. Leave to sear for about 1 minute, then flip around and stir-fry until almost cooked. Add the diced shallot.
  3. Deglaze the pan with the soy sauce. Add the shrimp and briefly stir until cooked through (I cheated and used cooked shrimps, which required the barest of stirring).
  4. Serve with rice and a green vegetable (I find snap peas or green beans go very well with this).
