    Pesto lover's Note:

    ZWT 6. I got this recipe from Kylie Kwong's Simple Chinese Cooking. I love that book and her cooking style. If you don't have shao hsing wine, use dry sherry wine instead.

      This is absolutely fantastic. The shrimp was perfectly cooked and was tender and delicious. The asparagus is bright and crisp, with the the fresh ginger and garlic adding a nice kick. I used cider vinegar instead of malt vinegar. Served this over some pasta to catch the yummy sauce. Made for my teammate for ZWT6. Thanks Pesto lover! :)
