"Goong Gah Tee-em" (Garlic
Goong Gah Tee-em is a fairly basic dish. It is easy to prepare, and almost
always comes out delicious, no matter who cooks it! This dish is usually
served with rice. It is not a meal in itself per say, but it is normally
served as part of a typical Thai meal, alongside several other dishes.
Here's what you need:
8 cloves of garlic, crushed to release their flavor
2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons coriander root, minced
1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 - 2 pounds shrimp (you can use any size you desire)
Here's how to do it:
First you are going to need to make a marinade. Combine the garlic, coriander
root, fish sauce, brown sugar, and pepper. Add in the shrimp and let it
sit for half an hour.
When your thirty minutes have passed, heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a
medium sized frying pan. Toss in the shrimp, and stir-fry them until they
turn pink. Squeeze a little lemon juice into the mixture, and serve garnished
with some sliced tomatoes and cucumbers.
