Stir - Fried Shrimp With Pepper Sauce
(Kan - Shao - Hsia - Jen)
What You Need:
  • 1 pound fresh shrimp in their shells (about 26 to 30 to the pound)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped, peeled fresh ginger root
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely chopped garlic
  • 4 scallions, including the green tops, cut into ¼-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine or pale dry sherry
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons tomato catsup
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in
  • 2 tablespoons cold chicken stock, fresh or canned, or cold water
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil, or flavorless vegetable oil

  • How To Cook:
    1. Shell and devein the shrimp. Then wash them under cold running water, drain and pat them dry with paper towels. Refrigerate until ready to use.

    2. Have the shrimp, and the oil, ginger, garlic, scallions, red-pepper flakes, wine, soy sauce, tomato catsup, sugar, salt and cornstarch mixture within easy reach.

    3. Set a 12-inth wok or 10-inch skillet over high heat for about 30 seconds. Pour in 2 tablespoons of oil, swirl it about in the pan and heat for another 30 seconds, reducing the heat to moderate if the oil begins to smoke.

    4. Immediately add the chopped ginger, garlic, scallions and red-pepper flakes, stir-fry for about 20 seconds, and drop in the shrimp.

    5. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 or 2 minutes, or until the shrimp turn pink and firm. Add the wine, soy sauce and tomato catsup, sugar and salt; stir once or twice.

    6. Give the cornstarch mixture a quick stir to recombine it and add it to the pan, stirring continuously, until the mixture thickens and coats the shrimp with a translucent glaze. Transfer to a heated platter and serve at once.

    To Serve: 4 as a main course or 6 to 8 as part of a Chinese Meal
