Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 scallions, cut into 3 pieces each and sliced into strips
  • 2 fat cloves of garlic, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 1 (1/2-inch) piece of ginger, peeled, sliced thinly, and cut into strips
  • 2 1/4 pounds shelled raw shrimp
  • 1/3 cup dry sherry
  • Kosher salt
Directions
  • Warm the oil in a large wide saucepan, and throw in the scallions, garlic and ginger.

  • Stir everything around vigorously until the onions begin to wilt, and then toss in the prawns, stirring again. Cover the pan and let everything cook for about 5 minutes; then, remove the lid and pour in the sherry. Stir again, then cover the pan until the prawns are cooked through and no longer glassy in the middle. Taste; add a sprinkling of salt if you need it. Pour into a large shallow bowl, making sure you don't lose all the bits of onion, garlic and ginger, and take immediately to the table.
