Clay Pot Shrimp

Prep Time: 6 minutes
Cook Time: 6 minutes
Servings: 4
For a delicious variation, you can use 1 lb. chicken, cut into 1-inch pieces, instead of shrimp. Sauté the onion and garlic as directed, then add the chicken and cook, stirring, about 1 minute. Add the clay pot cooking sauce and simmer until the chicken is cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes.


  • 2 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup clay pot cooking sauce
  • Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish
  • Steamed rice for serving


In a flameproof clay pot or saucepan over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the onion and garlic and sauté, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and translucent, 3 to 4 minutes.

Add the shrimp and cook, stirring, just until pink, about 1 minute. Add the clay pot cooking sauce, bring to a simmer and cook just until the shrimp are opaque, 2 to 3 minutes.

Garnish with cilantro and serve directly from the clay pot. Accompany with steamed rice. Serves 2 to 4.
