REVIEW: recipe rating
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.
