Hundred Get-together Shrimp
Ingredients:
4 Tablespoons corn oil
12 medium shrimp, peeled and cut in half the long way
1 scallion, minced
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
24 pieces of fresh or dried lily bulb pieces, cooking the dried ones for fifteen minutes
1 egg, beaten well (or two egg whites)
1/4 teaspoon each of sugar, white pepper, and salt
1 Tablespoon cornstarch or lily powder mixed with one tablespoon cold water.
Preparation:
1. Heat oil and cook shrimp for half a minute, then drain well and set aside. Remove all oil, leaving no more than one teaspoon in the wok or pan.
2. Heat remaining oil and fry scallion and ginger for half a minute, add lily bulb and mix well, then add salt and sugar, and stir well before adding the egg. Cook for up to one minute or until the egg just begins to set.
3. Add shrimp and cornstarch mixture and cook until thickened, but not longer than a minute, then serve.
