  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 3 tablespoons Ketchup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Oyster Sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 3 tablespoons Sherry
  • 2 bell peppers, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 1/4 cups Long-Grain Rice
  • 1 1/2 pounds Medium Shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 3 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Ginger, minced
  • 2 Scallions, white part chopped, green tops sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sesame Oil


  • In a small bowl, combine the chicken broth, ketchup, soy sauce, oyster sauce, salt, and 1 tablespoon of the sherry. Heat a wok or large frying pan over moderately high heat until very hot. Add the bell peppers and stir-fry until starting to blacken, about 5 minutes. Remove.
  • Cook the rice according to package instructions.
  • Meanwhile, toss the shrimp with the remaining 2 tablespoons sherry and the cornstarch. Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of the oil in the wok or frying pan over moderately high heat. Add the shrimp and stir-fry until just done, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the shrimp and add the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons oil. Reduce the heat to moderate and add the charred bell peppers, the garlic, ginger, the chopped scallions, and the red-pepper flakes. Cook, stirring, until soft, about 3 minutes.
  • Increase the heat to high. Add the broth mixture and boil until thickened, about 2 minutes. Add the shrimp and sliced scallions and just heat through. Drizzle the sesame oil over the top. Serve the shrimp with the rice.
