Thai Glazed Shrimp


  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 55 minutes

4 servings


1 tablespoon Mazola® Corn Oil

5 cloves fresh garlic, minced

2 shallots, finely minced

1-1/2 tablespoons Spice Islands® Crushed Red Pepper

3/4 cup Karo® Light Corn Syrup

1/2 cup cider vinegar

1/2 cup apple juice

1 lime, zest and juice

1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands® Thyme

1 Spice Islands® Bay Leaves

1/2 teaspoon salt

1-1/2 pounds large, peeled raw shrimp

Heat oil in a large skillet.  Add garlic, shallots and crushed red pepper.  Cook until caramelized and lightly colored.  Pour in corn syrup, vinegar, apple juice, lime zest, lime juice, thyme and bay leaf.  Bring to a boil and cook until sauce is reduced to thick syrup, about 20 minutes.
