1/2 cup canned low-sodium chicken broth
3 tablespoons ketchup
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sherry
2 medium red bell peppers -- cut into 3/4-inch pieces
1 1/4 cups long-grain rice
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp -- shelled
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
3 tablespoons cooking oil
3 cloves garlic -- minced
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
2 medium scallions -- white part chopped, green tops sliced
1/2 teaspoon dried red-pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon asian sesame oil

Preparation / Directions:

1. In a small bowl, combine the chicken broth, ketchup, soy sauce, oyster sauce, salt, and 1 tablespoon of the sherry. Heat a wok or large frying pan over moderately high heat until very hot. Add the bell peppers and stir-fry until starting to blacken, about 5 minutes. Remove. 2. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Stir in the rice and boil until just done, about 10 minutes. Drain. 3. Meanwhile, toss the shrimp with the remaining 2 tablespoons sherry and the cornstarch. Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of the oil in the wok or frying pan over moderately high heat. Add the shrimp and stir-fry until just done, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the shrimp and add the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons oil. Reduce the heat to moderate and add the charred bell peppers, the garlic, ginger, the chopped scallions, and the red-pepper flakes. Cook, stirring, until soft, about 3 minutes. 4. Increase the heat to high. Add the broth mixture and boil until thickened, about 2 minutes. Add the shrimp and sliced scallions and just heat through. Drizzle the sesame oil over the top. Serve the shrimp with the rice. Converted by MC_Buster.
