Shrimp in ketchup sauce 乾燒明蝦

It's not easy to find whole shrimps in the supermarkets in US. I bought some shrimps at the H Mart. When we got home and found out that they were with head attached, I immediately thought I could make this for the Chinese New Year. With the ketchup sauce, it is delicious. Kids will love it too! Who doesn't like sweet and sour?
