Ginger Shrimp


24 Shrimp With Shells On

1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil

4 Cloves Chopped Garlic

4 Tablespoons Julienned Fresh Ginger

1 Tablespoon Sugar

¼ Teaspoon Kosher Salt

¼ Cup Soy Sauce

¼ Cup Brandy

Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok over a high heat. Add the shrimp quickly and stir fry. When done remove the shrimp from the oil and set aside. Add the chopped garlic and julienned fresh ginger to the hot oil. Also add the sugar and salt to the wok. Add the shrimp back to the mixture and continue to stir fry. Season with the soy sauce. Add the brandy to flambé. Be very careful as the pan must be very hot in order for it to ignite and you are about to have a large flame coming out of your wok. Do not attempt to do this near any flammable materials or too close to your guests. Once the alcohol has cooked off the dish is ready to serve. You can serve this dish over rice, noodles or its own. Serves 2
