OMG, best shrimps ever! Solid reicpe, easy and quick, and out of the world tasty!! Here are some tips from a Chinese girl if you want even more authentic flavor:
-Use 1.5-2 lbs raw shrimp(you can buy the peeled frozen shrimps with tail on)! This alone will kick this dish up a couple notches since the raw ones get more shrimp flavor in.
-Use fresh ginger!
-Triple the sauce, leave out the starch till the end (only use 1 TBS of corn starch, dilute in about 2 TBS water), I also added about 1 TBS of rice vinegar, the sauce was sooooooooooo yummy to eat with rice.
Here is how I made it with the above changes. Heat up about 2-3 TBS of grapeseed oil(shrimps are very low cal, so don't feel bad for adding some oil here), cut up about at least 1 thumb size of fresh ginger(first cut into match sticks, then cut into tiny bits), cut up 1-2 small bunch of green onions(white and light green part only). Fry them up till fragrant, toss in the thawed and drained shrimps, fry for 1-2 minutes over high heat, then pour in the tripled sauce, boil for 1-2 minutes, add the starch solution, stir. Add salt. Done!
Best ever shrimps hands down!!! gotta try it.
