Make It A Meal: Serve with
an accompaniment of Fried Rice and
Crab Rangoon like Cavanaugh Inn's®
Nice Cantonese style dish. However, if
you want a slightly more traditional method try this: Add the
sugar, sherry, and 1 TBSP the soy sauce to the shrimp to coat
before you blanch/shock the asparagus. The quick marinade enriches
the natural flavor of the shrimp. Make a cooking sauce from
remaining 1 TBSP soy, 1 TBSP of the sesame oil, 2 tsp cornstarch
and ¼ C. stock or cold water. For stir fry, use 2 TBSP peanut oil
in place of the sesame oil – veg. or canola are okay as well. Cook
the same way (adding sauce with the asparagus) and top the dish
with a sprinkle (about 1 TBSP) of toasted sesame seeds.
