I bought 3 kilos of shrimp and I was wondering how I can cook them, haha! Of course, I tried to find the easiest recipe in the internet and this recipe that I’m sharing now is one of the quickest one. It’s called Hoisin Shrimp and it takes only 10 minutes to cook.
It’s not the tastiest shrimp dish but it’s a good enough main dish to enjoy! I was able to enjoy this 4 times since I cook during the weekends and pack the dishes into individual meal sizes.

- 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
- 2 tsp soy sauce
- 1/2 kilo shrimp peeled
- salt to taste
