Shrimp in Lobster-Style Sauce

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

This is my version of Madame Wong's "Lobster Cantonese". I came up with this when my husband asked me to cook one of his chinese restaurant favorites, 'shrimp in lobster sauce'. I know it looks like a long list of ingredients and steps but once you have all the ingredients ready, the cooking goes fast.

I was never really a serious Chinese f'ood devotee, but, my husband, raised in the Bronx is... I remembered him saying something about Shrimp in Lobster Sauce and that"swhen I found this recipe... It was great.. couldn't use much garlic so I added in some shallot and black bean sauce with chili (just a bit), I over did it on the sherry but the end result was wonderful.. Thanks Hey Jude... this one's a keeper!
