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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
