Stir-Fried Shrimp with Snow Peas and Red Bell Pepper in Hot and Sour Sauce
2 medium garlic cloves, 1 minced or pressed through garlic press, 1 thinly sliced
1 pound extra-large (21-25) shrimp, peeled, deveined, and tails removed
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1 teaspoon soy sauce
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons white vinegar
1 tablespoon Asian chili-garlic sauce
1 tablespoon dry sherry or Shaoxing wine
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon ketchup
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 large shallot, sliced thin (about 1/3 cup)
1/2 pound snow peas or sugar snap peas, stems snapped off and strings removed
1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 3/4-inch dice
Combine minced garlic with shrimp, ginger, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, and salt in medium bowl. Let shrimp marinate at room temperature 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, chili-garlic sauce, sherry, sesame oil, ketchup, and cornstarch in small bowl. Combine sliced garlic with shallot in second small bowl.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over high heat until just smoking. Add snow peas and bell pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables begin to brown, 1½ to 2 minutes. Transfer vegetables to medium bowl.
Add remaining tablespoon oil to now-empty skillet and heat until just smoking. Add garlic-shallot mixture and cook, stirring frequently, until just beginning to brown, about 30 seconds. Add shrimp, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, stirring frequently, until shrimp are light pink on both sides, 1 to 1½ minutes.
