Chinese Take-Out Shrimp with Garlic
I used this recipe as a basis and then adjusted to my own taste. Here are my variations: Added 1 small sweet yellow onion Doubled sauce recipe(vinegar, chicken broth, sherry and fish sauce) Doubled corn starch/water Added 1 tsp sugar used and entire head of garlic(about 15 cloves) I prepped the ingredients first, then made the sauce. I halved the jumbo shrimp(Costco fresh shrimp are awesome) and soaked them in the sauce while I was cooking the veggies. I then added the shrimp and continued cooking for about a minute then added the sauce and finally the corn startch slurry. I served this over Jasmine Rice and it was incredible. Better than any Chinese restaraunt I've ever had it at. Kudos on this great recipe.

OK, so we have a sports bar in our area called Taco Mac, which features my favorite menu item when eating out, Angry Shrimp. This is close to that recipe. I tweaked it just a bit to make it more closely match Taco Mac's version. I used large shrimp from Costco, which I removed the tails because they are enormous even without them and much easier to eat. I used a blended Canola/Soybean Oil to fry them in. The sauce was actual just the butter and a healthy portion of Taco Mac Wing Sauce(I bought a bottle at our local TM) These were near dead on to Taco Mac's version. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing.
