1 egg white, beaten
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon cornstarch, divided
1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 cups peanut oil

ASSEMBLY
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 tablespoon chicken broth
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon Asian chile sauce
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon minced ginger root
2 cups shredded lettuce

Preparation
SHRIMP:
Combine the wine, salt, egg white, 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and the vegetable oil. Add the shrimp; marinate 30 minutes.

Place the remaining cornstarch in a bowl. Add the shrimp; toss well. Place the shrimp in a colander and shake to remove any excess cornstarch.

Heat a wok over high heat then add the peanut oil. Heat to 375 degrees. Drop half the shrimp into the oil and cook until light golden, 2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Cook the rest of the shrimp. Drain the oil from the wok.

SAUCE:
Heat the wok over high heat.

Combine the ketchup, chicken broth, sugar, chile sauce, garlic and ginger and add to the wok. Bring to a boil. Add the shrimp; toss to coat.

Divide the lettuce among 6 plates and top with the shrimp.
