|GIOVANNI'S ORIGINAL SHRIMP TRUCK RECIPE|
COOKED AT HOME
If you crave the flavor of the Shrimp and Hot Sauce from Giovanni's Original Shrimp Truck on the North Shore of Oahu, get ready to enjoy this flavor feast at home. Whether you are in Iowa or Honolulu, you now can buy the sauces that made the little white shrimp truck famous around the world. Giovanni himself who was one of the original partners of the truck now bottles and sells the sauces on the internet. www.giovannissauces.com brings the North Shore to your kitchen. I ordered the Scampi Sauce and Hot and Spicy Sauce online. They arrived in just a few days. Preparation is simple. Marinate the shrimp in the Scampi Sauce for around 45 minutes and then sauté. We added a lot of extra freshly chopped garlic to the marinade. Also sautéed the rice in the remaining sauce and garlic to make a really good garlic rice. What makes Giovanni's special for me is the hot sauce. The flavor and heat level make this one of my favorite hot sauces. I dip the shrimp in the sauce and pour it over the rice. The hot sauce purchased online was a bit thinner than what we get on the North Shore. It still packed a punch and delivered that Giovanni's flavor that we love.
