Notes

A shrimp-intensive stir fry in a highly seasoned sauce that will have you savoring the shells!

This is a recipe that attempts to reproduce the signature dish of the Phoenix Garden, a much loved NY Chinatown restaurant. Once it was made famous by an article in NY magazine it ceased being a hidden treasure.

This dish is most attractive served on a bed of quick fried rice-flour noodles. With some types of shrimp even the shells can be consumed. "Easy-peel" shrimp, now sold in supermarkets take all the work out of this dish. Just remove the legs and you're ready to go.

Hi Vince - welcome to BakeSpace. Your recipe makes me want to run out and by another wok. (I gave mine to my grandaughter when she moved out). Karen1
