Shrimp with Vegetables
1 T vegetable oil
1 pound raw shrimp, shelled and deveined
8 oz fresh broccoli, (or your favorite vegetable) cut into small pieces
4 oz whole button mushrooms, or sliced ones
8 oz (1 can) bamboo shoots, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp oyster sauce
1/4 tsp minced fresh ginger (In the supermarket, you can break off a piece of ginger, the size you need.)
1/8 tsp pepper
Heat oil in wok or large skillet over high heat. Add shrimp and stir-fry until shrimp turn pink, about 3 minutes. Add broccoli to wok, stir-fry one minute. Add mushrooms and bamboo shoots, stir-fry 2 minutes more.
Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl, mix well. Pour over shrimp/vegetable mixture. Cook and stir until sauce thickens.
Makes four generous servings. I always double the recipe. Leftovers are great,
maybe even better.
