  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • ½ stick butter (50g)
  • 6 cloves garlic -minced
  • 2 pieces Thai chili
  • 4 pieces salted egg yolks
  • 125 ml table cream
  • 50 ml water
  • 1 pound shrimp -medium to large size, deveined and washed
  • Salt


  • Heat oil in a large skillet or pan over medium heat. Add butter and melt.
  • Add the minced garlic and cook just until limp and aromatic.
  • Add the salted egg yolks and stir. Break into pieces by pressing it against the pan with the back of a spoon. It will start to bubble and that is fine.
  • Stir in the chili peppers and pour in the cream. Mix until blended. Pour in water and mix until it is well blended and sauce becomes creamy.
  • Add the shrimp and season with salt. Cook for 5 minutes or until they turn completely pink and opened up a little.
  • Transfer to serving plate and enjoy with steaming hot rice.
