directions

  • Mix together 1 1/2 TBS of the oil, the honey, sherry, soy sauce, five-spice powder, garlic and ginger in a bowl.
  • Add the shrimp, making sure to coat them evenly with the marinade; cover and marinate for at least an hour or up to 8 hours in the refrigerator.
  • Remove the shrimp from the marinade, reserving the marinade.
  • Heat a wok over high heat until it smokes, and then add the remaining 1 1/2 TBS oil.
  • Heat the oil for a couple of seconds, then add the shrimp and stir-fry for a minute, or until they have turned pink.
  • Pour in the reserved marinade and the water.
  • Cook briskly, stirring constantly and coating the shrimps with the sauce, for about two minutes.
  • Remove the shrimps from the wok, and continue cooking the sauce until it is well-reduced and syrupy, a matter of just a minute or so.
  • Serve sauce over the shrimps.

    This was delicious! I doubled the sauce ingredients and added about 3 cups of assorted vegtables I needed to use up. When it was almost done I thickened it with a little cornstarch. We enjoyed it very much. Thanks for this wonderful and easy recipe.

    I thought the Chinese five spice powder was a bit too strong for me. The recipe was fine - it was more my dislike of this ingredient.

    Very tasty. I've found that many times in other recipes calling for Chinese 5 Spice that it overpowers, but the flavors really complement one another in this yummy dish. I added a boneless, skinless chicken breast and 2 bags of frozen stir fry veggies and also a dash of crushed red pepper. I also thickened the sauce using about 2-3 T. of cornstarch to make the marinade more of a sauce. LOVED it. Served it to company who also really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing.

    Very good but I do suggest to marinate over night. I only had time to marinate for an hour and felt the flavours didn't intensify as I would have liked them too. Next time I would also add some green onions. Thanks FlemishMinx!
