Pickled Carrots and Daikon Radish
1 cup warm water
¼ cup distilled white vinegar
2 T sugar
2 tsp salt
½ pound carrots (grated through a medium fine grater)
½ pound daikon radish (grated through a medium fine grater)

Mix the water, vinegar, sugar and salt until the sugar and salt dissolves. Place the carrots and daikon radish in a container and pour the liquid over. Let pickle for one hour. Can be stored in the fridge for up to a week.

For the Shrimp

2 T water
1 T fish sauce- Red Boat is our favorite
1 T oil
1 shallot finely diced
2 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 pound wild gulf shrimp
1 T fish sauce

Heat the sugar and water in a pan on medium high heat until the sugar caramelizes and turns dark brown. Carefully (it will splatter) add the water and fish sauce and stir over low heat until the caramel dissolves. Remove from heat and set aside.

Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add shallot and garlic and sauté for 3-5 minutes until soft. Add shrimp, caramel sauce, fish sauce, and pepper and cook until shrimp is pink all over about 3-4 minutes. Let cool.
