Goog Kratiem (garlic shrimp) from Relish Cooking Studio

Last week I attended a cooking class at Relish Cooking Studio. I had purchased the class as a deal from Living Social a few months earlier and eagerly anticipated the class. The class was definitely worth the wait! I learned a lot about cooking Thai food including how to:

  • Recognize and choose ingredients
  • Remove the seeds from a hot pepper
  • Juice a lime
  • Adjust the spiciness of a dish

In fact, the class helped to ease me into the idea that I too could prepare Thai food at home. I don’t have to eat out to enjoy Thai food. The class instructor, Akeela Rabley, has generously allowed me to share all of her recipes here on this blog. Thank you Akeela and Relish Cooking Studio!

The next few recipe posts will highlight foods I learned how to make in this class. (Please forgive the pictures, I forgot my camera at home and had to rely on my cellphone camera).

Goog Kratiem (garlic shrimp)

Recipe by Akeela Rabley from Relish Cooking Studio

I could eat this as a meal as opposed to an appetizer. I’m sure it would be delicious served over a bed of rice or noodles.

Ingredients

Marinade

  • 8 garlic cloves, crushed – approximate cost $0.50
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, minced (stems and leaves) – approximate cost $0.25
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper – approximate cost $0.10
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt – approximate cost $0.05
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce – approximate cost $0.25
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons palm sugar (or brown sugar) – approximate cost $0.25

Shrimp

  • 1 pound of shrimp (shelled and de-veined) – approximate cost $10.00
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil – approximate cost $0.05
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, quartered – approximate cost $1.00
  • 1 cucumber, sliced thinly – approximate cost $1.25

Method

  1. Prepare the marinade by combining the garlic, cilantro, white pepper, salt, fish sauce, and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add the shrimp to the marinade and set aside for 10-30 minutes.
  3. Preheat a frying pan (with vegetable oil) over medium-high heat.
  4. Add the shrimp and sautee until cooked through (the shrimp will turn pink).
  5. Remove shrimp to a serving plate and garnish with tomato and cucumber pieces.

Makes 4 servings (approximate cost: $3.43 per serving).
