1 lb large shrimp, cleaned and deveined
3 1/2 cups assorted fresh vegetables, chopped (your choice)
1/3 cup chicken broth
1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon chili paste (sambal oelek) (optional)
1 tablespoon dry sherry or 1 tablespoon sake
1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
9 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons minced ginger
10 Thai chiles, stemmed and left whole (optional)
1 tablespoon cornstarch
3 tablespoons water
Hot steamed rice
In a small bowl, mix together chicken broth, vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, chile paste (if using) and sherry; set aside.
In another small bowl or cup, stir together the tablespoon of cornstarch with the 3 tbsp of water and set aside.
Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a wok; add ginger and garlic and sizzle briefly, then add vegetables and Thai chilies (if using). Stir-fry vegetables for approximately 3 minutes, then add the shrimp. Cook the shrimp 2 minutes or until it curls and turns opaque or pink. Add the sauce mixture and cook 1 minute more; then stir in the thickener (briefly stir first) and stir-fry until mixture thickens, about 1 minute.
Serve with hot cooked rice.
