Spicy Szechwan Shrimp

My youngest son absolutely loves shrimp and has been asking me repeatedly to make his all-time favorite shrimp dish, spicy szechwan shrimp. So, that is what we are having tonight. Here is the recipe:

Marinade:
2 TBSP dry sherry
1 TBSP dark sesame oil
1 TBSP hoisin sauce
1 TBSP dark soy sauce
1 TBSP honey
2 tsp. Asian chile sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 TBSP fresh ginger, minced
3 TBSP green onion, minced
2 TBSP cilantro, chopped

1 lb. peeled and deveined shrimp, tails removed

2 TBSP grapeseed oil

1. In a medium bowl, prepare marinade by combining the sherry, sesame oil, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, honey, chile sauce, garlic, ginger, green onion, and cilantro.

2. Add shrimp to marinade; cover and refrigerate up to 8 hours.

3. Preheat a wok to high. Add grapeseed oil to coat the wok. Add shrimp to the wok, reserving marinade. Stir-fry until shrimp are pink, 1-2 min. Add marinade and toss to coat the shrimp. Serve immediately over rice.
