1# Shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 pkg Tofu, firm, cut into squares

¾ cup Sugar

½ cup Asian fish sauce

½ cup Shredded coconut

1 Tbl Chili garlic paste

1 Tbl Fresh ginger, grated

Assorted Asian vegetables

4 cups Jasmine rice, cooked


Heat non-stick skillet over high heat; add sugar and allow to start melting and brown slightly. Add raw shrimp and tofu and toss with sugar mixture stirring constantly. Add fish sauce, chili paste, coconut & ginger.

Add Asian vegetables and continue to stir fry to soften veggies; be careful not to over-brown the sugar mixture. Place rice in center of entrée bowl and ladle shrimp & tofu mixture over rice and garnish with additional coconut.
