1 pound medium shrimp -- shells on
2 medium scallions -- chopped
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger root -- grated
1 tablespoon soy sauce -- light
1 tablespoon dry sherry
1/2 tablespoon sesame oil

Preparation / Directions:

Place the shrimp, shells on, in a shallow porcelain bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and toss about. Place the bowl in a hot bamboo steamer and steam about 5 to 7 minutes, until the shrimp are pink and barely firm. Stir the shrimp once during the cooking to make sure they cook evenly. Peel and eat, or eat them, shell and all. Comments: Here is a fine steamed dish that takes only a few minutes to prepare. You really should buy a Chinese bamboo steamer set, because metal steamers will drip water on your food and dilute the flavors.
