  3. Heat oil in a frying pan/heavy bottomed skillet. Fry shrimps in batches to achieve crispy shrimp, (over crowding will give you soggy shrimps). Drain on paper towel and set aside.
  4. On a small pan, melt butter then fry garlic, cook until garlic turns brown but not burned. Remove fried garlic. 
  5. Using the same pan quickly saute' the sliced cabbage until it starts to wilt but not over cooked. Cabbage must still have the crisp.
