Goong Kob Poh (Hot and Cold Shrimp)

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Seafood

 Ingredients List

  • 1 kg Medium size fresh shrimp
  • 7 Red hot chili
  • 3 Cloves garlic
  • 1 tb Sugar
  • 1 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/4 c Hot water
  • 2 tb Lime juice
  • 1 tb Hot sauce *
  • 1 tb Chopped coriander
  • * (Sriracha or Sambel
  • -Lampung) [Sriracha is a


Thai hot sauce, available here, and comes in several varieties++ from
mildly warm to blisteringly hot. Some of them are quite similar to a thick
Tabasco sauce which is what I would use for a substitute. S.C.]

Here is a recipe from my new Thai cookbook that is mainly a dip, since the
shrimp are either grilled or eaten raw with the rest of the ingredients. I
haven't made this yet, but the dip sounds quite similar to the Vietnamese
"Nuoc Cham" (which would be good also.)

Peel shrimp, remove the center black line, leave the tail on. Clean and
drain, arrange on a plate, chill for 2 hours. Pound the chili and garlic
until fine. Place into a small bowl. Mix sugar, salt and hot water and
stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour over pounded chili and garlic. Add
lime juice and hot sauce, stir and top with chopped coriander.

To Serve: Thread the shrimp onto the sticks. Cook over charcoal until
done to satisfaction. Dip in prepared sauce to taste. It can be served
raw and cold.
