Ketchup Shrimps Recipe

Ketchup shrimps is one of the most popular homemade dishes in Hong Kong. My mom used to cook this all the time and it would be gone long before any other dishes. It tastes better if you cook it with the shell on. You have to lick the sauce off the shell first, then peel the shell and eat the shrimp, don’t forget to lick your finger tips at the end. The thought of it make me so hungry.
