Szechwan Shrimp

Recipe from: FOODGU1
Servings: 4

Don't let some of the ingredients fool you — this spicy shrimp makes a simple, impressive dish, which I usually make for company. For more or less heat, adjust amount of red pepper. Serve over hot steamed rice.

4 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon honey
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
¼ cup sliced green onions
4 cloves garlic, minced
12 ounces cooked shrimp, tails removed

In a bowl, stir together water, ketchup, soy sauce, cornstarch, honey, crushed red pepper, and ground ginger. Set aside. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in green onions and garlic; cook 30 seconds. Stir in shrimp, and toss to coat with oil. Stir in sauce. Cook and stir until sauce is bubbly and thickened.
