  1. Peel and devein shrimp. Combine the sherry and soy sauce in a medium bowl and add shrimp. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a wok or large skillet over high heat and add the oil. Add ginger and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the shrimp (reserving the marinade) and cook until light pink, 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Add mushrooms and snow peas and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until the snow peas are bright green and crisp-tender. Add scallions and water chestnuts and stir-fry until just heated through.
  4. Add the reserved marinade and cornstarch mixture. Bring to a boil and cook until the sauce thickens. Serve.

Pretty good. I added 1 teaspoon of garlic like other posters suggested.
I cooked it exactly- shrimp was cooked but not rubbery!

Very nice. Omitted the water chestnuts as we had a lot of snow peas. And added a couple dashes of sriracha sauce to perk it up. Thanks for sharing.

Liked this recipe a lot! Used sake instead of sherry; low sodium soy sauce; and peanut oil instead of vegetable oil. I normally keep my gingerroot in the freezer, and grate it (frozen) to use in stir fries; I mixed the grated ginger with the shrimp while it was marinating, and that way it infused the shrimp with a lovely fresh ginger flavor. Also added some dashes of red pepper flakes into the shrimp marinade. Nice and light dish!
