Preparing the mango sauce

In a wok or large skillet, heat a tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Add the sliced onions and sauté until translucent and starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Remove the onions from the wok and reserve them in a bowl.


In the same wok, add the rest of the oil. Add the shrimp and cook until they turn pink and opaque, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.


Add the grated ginger and reserved onions to the wok with the shrimp. Pour the soy sauce over the shrimp and toss gently to coat all the ingredients. Let it simmer for a few seconds so the flavors blend.


Sprinkle the shrimp with chopped chives and black sesame seeds. Stir lightly to distribute the toppings. Serve immediately with hot Cambodian rice.
