  • 1 lb. shrimp
  • 1 tsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. grated ginger
  • 1 med. sweet pepper
  • 1 small carrot
  • 1 hot pepper
  • 2 pimento peppers
  • 2 cloves garlic grated
  • 4 leaves chadon beni chopped
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. lime juice
  • 2 chives divided, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • Water


  • Devein the shrimp leaving the shell on. Wash and drain. Season with ginger, pimento pepper, garlic, black pepper, chadon beni, lime juice, 1 chive and salt.
  • Take a fork and scour the sides of the carrot. Note: We are doing this to make a pattern. Cut the carrot into ⅛ " slices. Cut the onion in four. Then cut each piece in half. Separate the onion layers. Cut up the hot pepper and chive.
  • Heat the oil in the wok over a medium flame. Add the hot pepper and fry for 1 minute. Be careful! Add the shrimp and stir fry for 1 minute. Add about ¼ cup of ketchup, soy sauce and a little water. Then add the onion, chive, sweet pepper and carrots. Add ¼ cup ketchup and ¼ cup water. Stir. Cover and simmer for 2 minutes.
  • Remove from the flame when the water has reduced to the right consistency. Garnish with a sprig of chive.
