      This is so delicious and just like the restaurants! I didn't use any sherry wine because I made this once before and it was to vinegery and the sherry was very powerful so I used sweet cooking vinegar this time and no sherry wine. I didn't have corn starch but regular flour worked well. I will make this one again for sure. We couldn't stop eating it until it was all gone!
