Total time: 15 minutes | Serves 4
  • 24 large shell-on shrimp (14 ounces), peeled and deveined
  • Fine sea salt
  • 2 large eggs plus 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • ¼ cup canola or other neutral-flavored oil
  • ¾ teaspoon ground annatto or paprika
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped

Step 1Use a meat mallet, rolling pin or heavy skillet to gently tap each shrimp 3 or 4 times to crush lightly. Season the shrimp with salt. Beat the eggs and yolks with the fish sauce.

Step 2Combine the oil and annatto in a small nonstick skillet. Set over medium-low heat and stir until the oil turns deep orange, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and sizzle, stirring, until fragrant, about 45 seconds. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring, until just opaque throughout and curled, about 2 minutes. Pour in the egg mixture and cook, stirring, until just set, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
