Chinese hot and sour shrimp cooks quickly so need to have all ingredients ready before heating up the wok. Marinating time in not included in prep time (8-24 hours). Recipe source: Bon Appetit (January 1983)
Oh wow; this is a quick, easy meal that is sure to impress anyone. Tastes straight from the restaurant. I found it in one of my old cookbooks. The combination of proscuitto, cream, peas, shrimp and gorgonzola cheese is simply out of this world. You may substitute any pasta that you like for this recipe, though. Perfect with candles and wine for a romantic dinner. Simply delicious!
I got this recipe from a Coast Guard wife whose husband worked with mine. She was from a tiny town in Louisiana and said sometimes her dad would work for shrimp when it was in season and her mom would make this with some homemade biscuits to go with it. I lost this recipe once, and tried some more elaborate recipes for the etoufee, but this ones is TONS better than any I've tried.
