Cashew Shrimp Recipe

Cashew shrimp is a popular Chinese take away meal. This stir fry has fresh shrimp that are tossed with cashews and celery in a savory white sauce. This is perfect served with a side of vegetable fried rice or white steamed rice. The shrimp in this recipe have already been peeled and deveined, making it a quick and easy recipe. You can usually find pre cleaned shrimp in the seafood section of most large grocery stores. It may cost a little more than the unclean shrimp, but it well worth it with the time you save. Try this cashew shrimp stir fry recipe and let me know what you think in the Chinese food forum, enjoy!

1 lb. fresh shrimp � peeled and deveined
1 cup cashews (whole or pieces)
2 celery stalks
1� tbsp of peanut oil

Sauce Ingredients:
2/3 cup chicken stock
2 tbsp regular sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch
3 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sherry (this is optional and can be left out if preferred)

  1. Try to purchase fresh shrimp that has already been peeled and deveined for this recipe. If you already have unclean shrimp on hand then just make sure to peel, clean and devein it before starting the next step.

  2. Rinse the celery stalks under cold running water and dry them thoroughly. Then cut off the ends on a diagonal and discard and cut the remaining stalks into thin diagonal slices and then set them aside.

  3. Next in a large cup mix together all of the ingredients for the sauce, stirring until the cornstarch dissolves completely.

  4. Now we can start cooking. Heat a wok on high and let it get hot.

  5. Once it�s hot add the peanut oil and swirl it around the wok to coat the sides.

  6. Then when the oil is hot add the celery and the cashews and stir fry them for 30 seconds.

  7. Then add the shrimp and stir fry everything for 1 minute, or just until the shrimp curl and turn light pink.

  8. Then give the sauce mixture a good stir so that the cornstarch is thoroughly mixed in and add it to the stir fry. Stir until the sauce thickens and coats the shrimp and cashews.

  9. This makes 2 servings and is great served alongside some vegetable fried rice, enjoy.
