This recipe is a family favorite, quick, easy, and ohh, so delicious! It is from a place I visited many years ago in Hong Kong.1 pound large shrimp 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon sugar 1/4 teaspoon chili powder 3 tablespoons oil 1 tablespoon minced garlic 1 tablespoon thinly sliced fresh chili 2 scallions, chopped
Clean and devein shrimp, leaving tails on. Rinse under cold running water, then pat well dry with paper towels. In a small bowl, combine salt, sugar and chili powder.
Heat a wok over high heat to VERY HOT. Swirl in 1 tablespoon of the oil, add the garlic and sliced chile. Sir fry for 30 seconds. Add the shrimp and 1 tablespoon of the oil and stir-fry for 1 minute, or until the shrimp just begin to turn pink. Swirl in the remaining oil, add the salt mixture, and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes more, until the shrimp are just cooked. Stir in the scallions.
