1/2 teaspoon minced garlic 3 ounces Kung Pao sauce 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper 8 ounces shrimp 1 teaspoon chopped green onion 5 whole chile pods sesame oil
Heat wok (smoking), introduce oil and shrimp, separate and velvet for 1 to 2 minutes. Do not overcook. Carefully pour shrimp and oil onto oil skimmer. Stir fry chile pods and onions; add garlic and Kung Pao sauce. Add shrimp, toss, and add peanuts and chile flakes.
Very poor directions. Thankfully I'm an experienced cook so I made do. Here's my rewrite: Heat wok, add oil (1 tbsp) and when it smokes add shrimp and stir fry for 1-2 minutes. Do not overcook. Remove the shrimp using a spider or slotted spoon. Add the chile pods and green onions to the oil and stir fry until onions are soft. Stir in garlic and kung pao sauce. Re-add shrimp and toss to mix. Serve shrimp garnished with peanuts and crushed red pepper.
