Shrimp Stir Fry
Yield: Serves 4.
For the sauce (mix together in a bowl)
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth
- 3 tablespoons ketchup
- 1 teaspoon rice vinegar (or white vinegar)
- 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
For the shrimp
- 1 pound raw shrimp, deveined
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons coconut, vegetable or peanut cooking oil
- 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
- 1-2 garlic cloves, finely minced
- 1 tablespoon finely sliced green onion
- 1 green bell pepper cut into slices
- Handful of shredded iceberg lettuce
- Pat the shrimp very dry and place them in a bowl. Toss with the cornstarch.
- Heat a wok or large frying pan on high heat until a bead of water instantly sizzles and evaporates upon contact. Add the cooking oil and swirl to coat. Add the cornstarch coated shrimp to the wok and spread out in one layer. Let fry untouched for 1 minute. Flip and fry other side for another minute. Remove the shrimp from the frying pan, keeping as much oil in the pan as possible.
- Return the pan to the stove. Add an additional teaspoon of cooking oil to the pan if needed. When the pan is hot, turn the heat to medium and add the garlic and the ginger and fry for 15-30 seconds until fragrant.
- Pour in the sauce mixture and bring to boil. Add the cooked shrimp back into the wok and let simmer for an additional minute until the shrimp are cooked through. Toss the green pepper slices into the sauce with the shrimp for just a few seconds then remove from heat and serve immediately, on bed of shredded lettuce.
