Step 1
Heat a medium saucepan over high heat with eight cups of water. Finely chop the Shallot (1) and set aside. Cut the Scallion (1) into quarter inch thin slices. Set aside. Cut the Brussels Sprouts (2 1/2 cups) in half, and set aside.
Step 2
In a small bowl, juice the Lime (1) and set aside. Using a colander, rinse and drain the Jasmine Rice (2/3 cup) and set aside.
Step 3
Pat dry the Shrimp (16) with paper towels and place in a medium bowl. Add the Fish Sauce (1 Tbsp) , shallots, and Salt (1/4 tsp) .
Step 4
In a small saucepan, add one cup of water and the jasmine rice and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Stir once, then cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for ten minutes. Remove from heat, fluff, and hold.
Step 5
Place the brussel sprouts in the medium saucepan with boiling water and cook for four minutes. Using a colander, drain the brussels sprouts and set aside.
Step 6
Meanwhile, in a large saute pan add the Granulated Sugar (2 Tbsp) , one tablespoon of water, and lime juice to the pan. Cook for three to four minutes, shaking the pan throughout, until the sugar caramelizes and is the color of tea.
