Fried Chinese Shrimp- Recipe

This is a quick and delicious appetizer to cook. The first time I had it was in Chinatown in San Francisco and this is a fairly close duplication of that recipe.

Fried Chinese Shrimp

1 pound large shrimp

1 Tbsp soy sauce

½ Tbsp sherry

½ tsp fresh grated ginger

2 Tbsp peanut oil

2 cloves garlic, chopped

3 green onions, chopped

1 tsp salt

1 Tbsp Sesame oil

Marinate shrimp in their shells for at least ½ hour in the soy sauce, sherry and ginger. Drain. Stir fry in a hot pan with the peanut oil and garlic until color changes. Add green onions. Add sesame oil and a dash of salt. Toss until onions are barely wilted.

Serve hot and let guests remove shells.
