Wow 2 posts in one night! This is one of my go-to dishes that I make when I only have to feed myself. The brothers are also big fans. It’s super easy and takes a minimal amount of ingredients.

I don’t know why my photography skills are so lacking lately. Let’s blame the lighting. So, we got about 7 or 8 medium sized shrimp, peeled, deveined, and cut into bite size pieces, half of a chopped tomato, 3 minced cloves of garlic, half of a chopped onion, and about half a pound of chopped Chinese long beans. You can also use regular green beans, just cut them thinly and on the bias.

After heating up your wok or saute pan, put in about half a tbsp of oil. Saute the garlic, onions, and tomatoes (in that order) before adding the beans. Theeen, throw in half a cup of water and let the beans cook until they are nice and tender. Throw in the shrimp and a couple of splashes of soy sauce or salt to taste. Serve with a steaming pile of hot rice and a side of fish sauce (if you’re fancy). Easy to whip up in about 20 minutes.

Now that picture is a little better. Coming up: adventures in Europe. Stay tuned!
