I think everyone has dishes that remind them of home or your mom’s cooking. The flavors in this shrimp and tofu dish totally remind me of home. This is one of those dishes that is perfect eaten with a big bowl of rice. It is flavorful, extremely easy to eat and saucy enough to mix with rice and turn into a completely satisfying meal.
I am told by my mom that I have always been a huge fan of shrimp. Ever since I was a toddler, I would ask for and eat shrimp all the time. When one of my uncles babysat me, he would always cook a few shrimps for me to eat as a snack. I don’t recall loving shrimp this much but maybe I did eat too much of it as a child because I recall not being too much of a fan of it when I was in my pre teens years. I think I was sick of eating shrimp and didn’t even know it. As an adult now, I will happily eat shrimp and I enjoy how easy and fast it is to cook. I always keep a bag of frozen shrimp in the freezer for those days that I need to put together a quick meal.
