List of Ingredients
1 pound raw shrimp. Shell, devein, wash and pat dry. Set aside.

Combine:
1/4 - 2 teaspoons Asian chili sauce (leave out if you do not like spicy food)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon sugar
Add shrimp to combined mixture above. Mix well. Let stand 15 minutes

1 scallion, cleaned and thinly sliced
3 slices fresh ginger (or to taste), minced
2 - 3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon dry sherry, rice wine or gin
6 ounces snow peas, stringed
1 can baby corn, rinsed and drained, leave whole or cut in halves
1 onion, cut into small wedges
few strips red pepper
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
3 - 4 tablespoons oil
1/4 - 1/2 cup chicken broth
1 teaspoon cornstarch combined with 1 tablespoon water

Preparation
1. Heat wok or frying pan. Add 2 - 3 tablespoons oil. Swirl to coat cooking surface. Add scallion, ginger and garlic. Stir-fry over high heat until fragrant. Add shrimp. Stir-fry over high heat until shrimp changes color. Add wine. Mix well. Remove to a clean plate.

2. Add 1 tablespoon oil to wok or frying pan, if needed. Add salt, snow peas, baby corn and onion. Stir-fry until snow peas change color. Add broth. Cover. Boil 1 minute.

3. Add shrimp and red pepper. Stir-fry until shrimp is cooked. Thicken with cornstarch mixture. Enjoy!

KITCHEN HINTS:
1. To minimize cleaning a messy stove top, if you do not have a wok, use a chef pan, Dutch oven or even a pot to stir-fry, spattering is more contained resulting in less cleaning.

2. You may need to adjust the heat setting depending on the kind of pot and pan you have.

Feel free to adjust my recipe to your taste. Note the photo below has different vegetables than the ones mentioned above. Cooking is an individual thing, you should cook what you like and not what a recipe says. That's my philosophy. Norma
