( Caramelized Shrimp ).
In Kampuchea Krom, the poor eat mostly seafood because seafood is plentiful and cheaper than meat, and that’s one of the reasons why there are many Khmer Krom recipes with seafood. My home town, Kamourn Sor( Rach Gia) province is famous for producing the best seafood, from fresh to dried, salty fish, squids and shrimp, to fishsauce *tirk trey*.
Shrimp caramelized with sweet touch of tomato base is is absolutely easy and delicious Khmer Krom country recipes.
