Shrimp Stir Fry

This is a classic Chinese shrimp dish. Using simple ingredients, it is very easy to make.

One of the main flavoring ingredients in this dish is the Shaoxing wine which is made from fermented rice. It is very aromatic and has a taste similar to dry sherry. It is used in many Chinese dishes. Together with the ginger, the Shaoxing wine adds a wonderful flavor and aroma to the shrimp. In addition, the Shoaxing wine also adds a nice amber color to the shrimp, making the dish look and taste great too.

Ingredients:
  • 1 pound shrimp, deveined and padded dry with paper towels
  • 1/4 cup ginger, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon Shaoxing cooking wine
