Shrimp with Peas

My friend Yueyan from Shanghai cooked this yesterday for a potluck lunch of our International Women's Support Group. She said that in Shanghai, they often cook their dishes with sugar.

What you'll need:

Peeled Shrimp
Green Peas
Sesame Oil
Chinese Cooking Wine
Vegetable Oil
Starch Powder
Sugar
Salt

What you'll do:

Put together shrimp, wine, sesame oil, starch, and sugar in a bowl.
Set aside for 15 minutes.
Cook the shrimp in vegetable oil.
Add peas, then salt to taste.

Filipino option: Add boiled quail eggs and cashews.
