Goong Sarong (กุ้งโสร่ง)
Shrimp is one of my favorite foods to eat and photograph. I love their texture and color and that there are so many different ways you can cook them. Today I wrapped the shrimp with some egg noodles, then deep fry them. This recipe is called "Goong Sarong" . Goong means shrimp and Sarong is a large tube or length of fabric, often wrapped around the waist and worn by men and women throughout Southern part of Thailand. So the name derived from the fact that the noodles were wrapped around the shrimp, just like they were wearing sarong.
These crispy shrimp have all the taste yet so easy to prepare. They can be served as a snack or main dish depending on how much are you hungry. For best taste, you can serve them with savory or sweet sauce. (I use Thai sweet chili sauce.) Try this recipe out, I guarantee everyone in your family gonna loves the golden-glory of these fried shrimp -- crispy, crunchy, yet tender and moist on the inside. Below is my Goong Sarong (Shrimp in golden threads) recipe.
