Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds green beans
  • 3 cups peanut oil for deep-frying, plus 3 tablespoons for stir-frying
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced soaked dried shrimp
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions

Heat 3 cups of the peanut oil in a large pot to deep-fry temperature (350 degrees F), and fry the beans in batches until tender but still crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer beans to paper towels to drain.

Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons oil in a wok or large skillet. Add the scallions and garlic and cook just long enough to release the aromas, about 1 minute. Add the shrimp and green beans and mix well to coat the beans. Stir in the water, soy sauce, sugar, salt and pepper, and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes, tossing to heat through. Serve immediately.
