Spa Cuisine: Shrimp w/ Watermelon-Tomato Kimchee

For the Kimchee:

6 plum tomatoes, cored, halved, and cut into 1”chunks
1 tbsp. honey
2 tsp. fish sauce
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. rice wine vinegar
2 shallots, sliced ½”
1 cup Napa cabbage, shredded
16 cilantro leaves
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 cup watermelon, seedless, diced into 1” cubes
1 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tsp. sriracha (chile sauce available in most Oriental markets)

In a very hot sauce pot, sauté shallots in olive oil, stirring constantly. Cook for about 2 minutes, then add the tomatoes. Stir and cook for 2 minutes on high.

Reduce heat to medium-high and add honey, fish sauce, lemon juice, soy sauce and sriracha. Simmer for 15 minutes. Place Napa cabbage in a bowl and pour in hot mixture. Stir to coat cabbage and cool in refrigerator. Before serving, fold incilantro and watermelon.

For the Shrimp:

12 shrimp, peeled and de-veined
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tbsp. black sesame seeds or toasted white seeds
Salt as needed
Soda water as needed

Sift all dry ingredients into a mixing bowl. Whisk in soda water until batter takes on a thick, pancake batter-like consistency.

Batter the shrimp and cook in 350-degree oil until batter is golden, approximately 2 minutes. Transfer shrimp to a paper towel to drain. Season lightly with salt.

Place a spoonful of “kimchee” into the center of the plate. Twist three shrimp together and stack on top of the salad.
