Ginger Shrimp and Asparagus Stir-Fry
Easy, quick, elegant and delicious, this stir-fry is perfect for busy weeknights.
Rinse the shrimp and pat dry. Place in a bowl and toss with 2 teaspoons soy sauce, rice wine, 2 teaspoons cornstarch or arrowroot, and sugar. Marinate in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes. Mix stock, sesame oil and remaining soy sauce and starch in a cup, and reserve.
Chop the asparagus in 1-inch long pieces crosswise, discarding the tough bases.
Place a large wok or heavy skillet over high heat for a minute, then pour in the vegetable oil and swirl to coat pan. Add the shrimp and stir, tossing and stirring until the shrimp starts to turn pink. Add the asparagus and scallions and stir for a few seconds, then add the ginger, garlic and pepper flakes and stir for a few seconds more. Stir the soy sauce mixture and pour over the stir-fry. Stir constantly until the sauce thickens and the vegetables are crisp-tender. Serve over rice.
