Shrimp Sambal with String Bean

I'm using my new Canon Digital Power Shot SD 850 IS to snap this yummy delicious shrimp sambal with string bean.At last my new order card reader arrived,so I can download my photos.I make my own sambal paste ,last 2 weeks ago.You can get the recipe here Sambal Paste..Oh!! I been eating this dish with white rice for 2 days and it's really spicy and good...I really get the kick out of this..This dish is very simple to cook using any ready make sambal paste which I made in advance..Here it's goes..
Which photo look better??.The first photo is Auto mode ....or below photo with Manual mode function.I'm still working with my new camera....*rubbing my forehead and eyes* *sigh*

1 lb String Bean( remove both end thread & wash)
1 lb Shrimp(clean and deviened)
2 tbsp blended dry shrimp
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp chicken flavor powder
1 tsp oil
2-3 tbsp sambal paste
Heat wok or skillet at high heat.Add in oil and blended dried shrimp,fried until fragrant,then add in sambal paste.Add in clean shrimp,stir fried for 2- 3 minutes,scoop out,set aside.Add in string bean,sugar,salt and chicken seasoning.Stirred well for another 5 minutes,add in cooked shrimp.Serve with white rice.
Note:I like my string bean crispy ,crunchy and healthy,so I just cooked for 5 minutes with no water.If you like well done string bean,cook longer with some water(simmer) or deep fried string bean in oil first ,wash with cold water before adding in the sambal shrimp to cook again..Usually, chinese restaurant do that method...faster and string bean look shinny.

Yum! I love this dish too, so good with rice! Yes, use close up mode (shown by a flower sign) to take close up picture, if not it will be blur.
