Let me know what you think of this shrimp with mixed vegetables recipe in the Chinese food forum found here. Enjoy!

1 lb fresh large shrimp
I large green bell pepper
1 large red bell pepper
1 small crown of broccoli
2 small carrots
½ yellow onion
2 to 3 cups peanut oil
2 tbsp stir fry oil
1 tsp jarred pre chopped garlic

Marinade:
1 tsp salt
1 ½ tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp shao hsing wine

Sauce:
1 cup chicken broth
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp shao hsing wine
1 tbsp sugar
1 ½ tbsp cornstarch

  1. Remove the shells and tails from the shrimp. Pull the vein out that runs along the back of the shrimp.

  2. Then place them in a tight sealed container. Add the marinade ingredients stirring them in thoroughly. Then seal the container tightly and marinate them at room temperature for 30 minutes.

  3. Rinse the bell peppers and dry them off completely. Then remove their stems and seeds and cut them into ½ inch squares.

  4. Rinse the broccoli crown under cold water. Cut it into small same sized pieces, about an inch to an inch and a half in size. Place them a microwaveable safe bowl, cover them with hot water, and microwave them on high for 3 minutes. This can be done in a pot as well if preferred.

  5. Once it is cooked, drain it in a colander.

  6. Next peel the carrots. Cut off the ends and discard, cutting the smaller end off on a diagonal. Continue cutting the carrots on a diagonal into thin slices and then set these slices aside.

  7. Peel the onion and cut it into ½ inch squares.

  8. Mix together the sauce ingredients except for the cornstarch.

  9. Then mix the cornstarch with some water so that it dissolves completely.

  10. Once the shrimp marinate, heat the peanut oil on high in a wok.

  11. When the oil is hot add the shrimp and cook them for 30 seconds to a minute, or just until pink. Then remove them with a slotted spoon and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain off the excess oil.

  12. Then remove the oil from the wok and wipe it out completely.

  13. Then reheat it on high. When hot add the stir fry oil and let this oil get hot.

  14. When the oil is hot, add the garlic and stir fry it for about 30 seconds, or just until fragrant.

  15. Then add the peppers, carrots and onions and stir fry them for 3 minutes.

  16. Next, add the broccoli and the sauce and let the sauce come to a boil.

  17. When you see the sauce begin to bubble, add the cornstarch. Stir continuously until the sauce becomes thick.

  18. When the sauce thickens add in the shrimp and stir until everything is coated with the sauce.

  19. Serve with either white or fried rice. Makes about 3 servings.
