Spicy Shrimp and Tofu

I always cook a simple meal for my breakfasting or dinner. Last night, I've decided to cook this spicy shrimp with lots of tofu and carrots. It is serve warm with white rice.


2 tablespoon homemade sambal ( blend onion, garlic, dried anchovies and fresh hot peppers)
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon sweet soy sauce
salt to taste
1/2 lbs shrimp
1 cake of fried tofu
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoon olive oil

Fresh hot peppers I bought for just a dollar at NYC.

In a big skillet, sautee homemade sambal in olive oil. Add carrots and tofu. Stir for about 2 minutes. Then add water, soy sauce and oyster sauce. Salt to taste. Lastly add shrimp. You don't have to add water if you like your shrimp on a dry side.


  1. This looks so delish and has inspired me to make one too for Iftar!

  2. Sri, thanks for your comment. Enjoy your Iftar!

  3. I enjoyed this dish very much! I used carrots from our garden, so they were nice and sweet. I had regular tofu on hand, so I cut that into strips and fried it beforehand. I added cornstarch to thicken, and served the whole thing with extra Sriracha. Wonderful! And so fast. Thanks for this idea.

  4. Tumerica, thank you for visiting my cooking blog. What is Sriracha?
