Step 1:





Peeling a garlic clove is simple: pound the heck out of it with the flat blade of your knife. The husk falls right off, simple as can be.

Chop your garlic...

As you can see, this recipe uses lots of fresh garlic. You can set it aside for now.

Step 2:





Chop your green onion and set it aside also. This will be used for garnish. A very tasty garnish.

Step 3:





Get all your ingredients together. I like to have everything in little plastic cups because you need to put these ingredients together in your pan in very quick succession. Have the 6 tbs of corn starch in a bowl as pictured. Make a slurry out of the 3 tsp corn starch/3 tsp water. This will be used at the end to thicken the sauce.

Also, thaw, peel and devein your shrimp under running water, and set them on a paper towel. They should be moist as pictured. You'll see why. You can use 1 lb of shrimp to feed 2 people, or 2 lbs to feed four, the recipe will not suffer either way. I am using 1 lb here.

Step 4:





Get your rice going. Most rice says to use 1 cup to every 1 3/4 cup of water, but I have found you get better results (at least in Arizona) if you cut the water down to 1 1/2 cups. Bring it to a boil on high, then immediately set on your stove's lowest setting and let it cook for 15 minutes.
