 Ingredients List

  • 2 tb Peanut oil
  • 3 1/2 tb Chopped ginger
  • 8 Garlic cloves, peeled and
  • -chopped
  • 1 c Tomato sauce
  • 1/2 c Dry sherry
  • 1 c Dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 c Soy sauce
  • 1/4 c Rice or wine vinegar
  • 2 tb Hot sauce
  • 4 lb Medium shrimp, shelled


Heat a wok or large frying pan over high heat until it smokes.

Add peanut oil, then ginger, reduce heat and add garlic. Stir

in tomato sauce, sherry, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar and hot sauce.

Bring to a boil, stirring, until sauce thickens. Pour sauce into

a bowl and cool; add shrimp. Marinate shrimp, refrigerated and

covered, 8 hours (I use a plastic zip-type bag.) When ready to

serve, remove shrimp from marinade, shake off excess and thread

onto skewers. Prepare a charcoal grill or preheat broiler. Grill

or broil shrimp on one side until pink. Turn and cook a few minutes,

until they are just cooked through. Bring marinade to a boil and

serve with shrimp and plenty of hot bread. Yield: 16 servings
