Ok, I know, why Cambodian.....well because I was DESPERATE for that Asian kind of sweet but not Vietnamese or Thai taste.


Makes 4 servings.

Smoke 1.5 lbs of eggplant on a BBQ grill or in the oven (about 15-20 minutes, turning 2 times). Let cool and then peel off outer skin. Chop into hefty 1-2 inch chunks.

Squeeze 2 limes over eggplant chunks and let marinate for 4 hours or as long as overnight at room temperature..

Brown 1/2 lb lean ground pork in PAM coated or non stick skillet. Drain off any fat (DO NOT use pork sausage). During browning, add 3 cloves crushed garlic and stir into pork..

Add one packet Lee Kum Kee brand Sauce of Spicy Garlic Egg-Plant.

Add 1/3 c water and stir in well.

Add 1/2 lb very small cooked and deveined shrimp ("salad shrimp")..

Heat for 3-5 minutes, covered..

Nuke (microwave) room temp eggplant in lime for 2 minutes. Layer pork/shrimp mixture over eggplant.

Add 2 fresh chopped green onions and 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro in layer over the pork/shrimp mixture..


It turns out to be about to be about 230 calories per serving but it satisfies a multitude of cravings...

Hi Gatita-.

I work near Chinatown in Oakland so it was just in one of the grocery stores. However, you can also their products at the stores listed on their website:

This sauce is KILLER for eggplant. Pre medifast I would occassionally eat at a Cambodian Restaurant in Oakland called Battambang (on Broadway) and this sauce plus the lime juice comes VERY close to their dish (heaven), but without the oil, and I eat it without the rice. I too have a THING for eggplant and I love to grill it whole on the BBQ so it gets all smokey and you don't have to add any oil or anything to cook it. Yummmmm...

That's funny I sometimes go up to Oakland JUST to shop in Chinatown... (I live in Santa Cruz) ....I'll look for it!..

Gatita -.

That's right, you are hella NorCal. They have it in SF Chinatown too. I think I saw it last at the grocery next to Victoria Bakery on Vallejo and Stockton. It's only about $.69 a packet and mmmmmgood...
