Vietnamese Caramelized Chili Shrimp (Tom Rim) : Recipe

Here is a another Vietnamese dish I tried which included the Me’s Way Chilli Sauce I was gifted.

This is another dish you have to try its sooo good.


  • 2 lbs shrimp or King Prawn if you cant find shrimp
  • 1.5 teaspoon Me’s Way Chilli Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 5 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 large white onion (diced)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 spring onion (for presentation)


  1. Start by cleaning the shrimp by adding shrimp and salt in a bowl and giving them a good massage even if you buy them frozen (thaw first)
  2. Marinate the shrimp with fish sauce, Me’s Way Chilli Sauce, stock powder, sugar, black pepper, half of the minced garlic and half of white onion for at least 1 hour or overnight in fridge for best results.
  1. In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil on medium high.
  2. Now add the remaining garlic and white onion.
  3. Saute until fragrant (15-20 seconds).
  4. Add shrimp and all its marinade.
  5. Cook until liquid is mostly cooked off.
  6. Plate up and garnish with sliced spring onions and a dash of black pepper. Serve with steamed white rice.
