"This is just like you would get at a Cantonese Chinese restaurant. There is no lobster in the sauce. Medium to large shrimp can be used. It is great served over white rice." — MURF65

medium shrimp - peeled and deveined
1 1/2 tablespoons
My family is chinese and owned a chinese restaurant and this is a certifiable great recipe! I make this all the time. I especially like the shrimp marinated in sherry and corn starch. Gives it a great flavor. Just as good as something my dad would make. Thanks for the recipe!
We followed the recipe but perhaps because we have no idea what Cantonese food is like, were disappointed. It does look like the picture so there is no appetizing color to the dish. I love lobster and if there was to be a taste like that, to me I missed it. Over all bland and no special wow for us.
I'd love to try this recipe with LOBSTER PASTE!

Good Flavor. Lobster Paste does add a bit more flavor.)
Can anyone (Victor?)tell me where I can buy a can of lobster paste? Tried all over but can only find case quantities on the net...
This was just great. A forever keeper. It was easy to prepare and quick. My husband and I tried it and loved it. Can't wait for more family members to visit so I can serve it to them. Also, for more flavor, I used canned chicken stock instead of plain water. Much better taste.
This was SUPER close to one of my favorite dishes back home! LOVED IT! I did add green onion.
THANK YOU! I have been missing this meal!
Your recipe is wonderful, exactly how I remember it from my favorite restaurant. Will definitely make it again. Thank you for contributing it to this site.
Wonderful Recipe - better than my local Chinese food restaurants!
I made the following changes which made it even better:
1. Dissolved a beef bouillon cube to the cup of water in the sauce.
2. Used 1/3 lbs. ground veal instead of ground pork.
3. Added more cornstarch at the end to make it a bit thicker.
Very good! my picky husband loved it, said it tasted just as good as any Cantonese Restaurant. I added peas for some color and subtle sweetness and doubled the liquid ingredients as previously suggested by others. This is a keeper!
