Today was quite a hot day, so I decided to make food fit for a summer-y day. I decided to make a spicy shrimp Tom Yum noodle soup and a sweet and sour vegetable saute with shrimp. It made the heat more bearable. Phew! Hopefully fall weather will settle in soon and I can start to make more and more comfort food.
The Shrimp Tom Yom Soup.
Ingredients for the Sauteed Vegetables.
Its quite easy. Heat the pan and add either vegetable or olive oil. Then add the ground pork and shrimp and let it cook. Then add all the vegetables together. Mix everything together. Then add 2 tablespoons of Ketchup, 2 tablespoons of Soy Sauce and 2 teaspoons of sugar. Mix everything together again. Taste. It should taste a mostly sweet and have an after taste of sour. (Thats how you know it's perfect). Then serve.
Its an easy quick dish for a hazy, hot summer day. I'm looking forward to fall. Talk to you soon!!
