  • Heat a large sauté pan over high heat for 1 minute. Season the shrimp with 1/2 tsp. salt. Pour 2 Tbs. of the oil into the pan and then add the shrimp, garlic, chiles, and ginger. Sauté, tossing frequently, until the shrimp brown and are no longer translucent, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add another 2 Tbs. oil, the scallions, and 1/4 tsp. salt to the pan. Sauté the scallions until they wilt and begin to brown, about 2 minutes. Return the shrimp to the pan and toss well for 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and stir in the cilantro, lemon juice, and the remaining 1 Tbs. oil. Taste and add more salt and lemon juice, if needed. Serve immediately.

Serve over steamed jasmine rice.

    Loved it, but I did take the liberty to go heavy with the ginger.

    This needed more kick. Maybe my jalapenos didn't have enough heat. It sounded much more interesting than it tasted.

    This had no flavor. Used the correct amount of garlic, ginger, chiles, etc. Maybe it would help to marinate the shrimp as you do in an Asian remipe.
