Unless you’re shopping in a Chinatown liquor store, it’s hard to find a good-quality white rice wine. Most supermarkets and even Chinese food markets offer only “cooking wines,” and these tend to be of poor quality. If that’s all you can find, use gin instead.
If possible, use leftover rice and bring it to room temperature. If using freshly made rice, let it cool first.

Delicious! I've been making this for my family for a couple of years now and they love it!
GOOD, NOT GREAT. I used all the ingredients as noted and followed the directions precisely. I felt it was a bit too sweet and the rice was a bit mushy. I DID use room-temp day-old rice from take out from our local favorite chinese restaurant and the shrimp were very well drained of all fluid. I have been looking for a recipe that tastes like our fav take-out, this one fell just a tad short. BTW, I made two separate batches. One was with the ginger in the oil with the garlic, the other was to put the ginger in the sauce (as suggested by a previous review). I felt that the taste of ginger in the later was a bit too strong. Although I love ginger in every form, I felt that the taste of ginger overpowered all the other flavors. If I had gotten this rice at a restaurant, I would eat and enjoy it but I would never order it there again.
