Cooking time

20 minutes




540 /serving

The stars of this Thai-scented recipe are without a doubt those juicy curlicues of shrimp sitting pretty in each bowl. With a sauce of sweet chili and fresh basil, the fragrance is exquisite. Match them with crisp-tender Asian greens and sautéed zucchini, and serve the works over fluffed jasmine rice. Then get going with a garnish of tangy lime wedges and crunchy peanuts, and wait for the final embellishment: praise from all sides.

Cook the rice
In a medium pot, combine the rice, 3 cups water and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 14 to 16 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Fluff the rice.

Cook & coat the shrimp
Pat the shrimp dry with paper towel (remove the shells from the tails if desired); season with S&P. In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Cook the shrimp, 1 to 2 min. on one side, until partially cooked. Flip and add the chili sauce, stir-fry sauce and juice of 2 lime wedges. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 min., until the shrimp* are opaque, cooked through and coated. Add the basil and cook, stirring frequently, 30 sec. to 1 min., until wilted. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Wipe out and reserve the pan.

Sauté the vegetables
