DIRECTIONS

  • Marinate the shrimp: In a medium bowl, combine the shrimp, rice wine, cornstarch and salt; toss until the shrimp are evenly coated.
  • Set aside for 10 minutes.
  • Prepare the sauce: In a small bowl combine the rice wine, lime juice, soy sauce, oyster-flavored sauce, fish sauce and brown sugar; stir until the sugar dissolves.
  • Place a wok over high heat until hot.
  • Add the oil, swirling to coat the sides.
  • Add the shallots, chili peppers, lemongrass and fried garlic; stir-fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Slide the shrimp into the wok; cook, stirring, until the shrimp begin to turn pink, about 1 minute.
  • Pour in the sauce; reduce the heat to low, cover and cook until the shrimp are cooked through and the shallots are tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Scoop into shallow bowl and garnish with the cilantro sprig.
