Sauted shrimp with garlic and green beans

1  lb Large shrimp with shells

1 cup water

2 tsp No-salt seasoning

3 Cloves garlic -- sliced

1/2 tsp salt (optional)

2 tbs Dry sherry

2 tsp Sesame oil

3/4 lb Green beans -- trimmed

2 tbs peanut oil

2 tb Garlic -- minced

1 tbs Fresh ginger -- peeled and minced

1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce

1/4 cup Scallions -- minced, use both green and white parts

Juice of 1/2 lime


Peel the shrimp and simmer the shells for 5 minutes or so in the water while you work on the rest of the recipe.  Marinate the shrimp in a mixture of 1 tsp of the no-salt seasoning, the sliced garlic, salt, sherry, and 1 teaspoon of the sesame oil while you assemble the other ingredients.  Drain the shrimp shells, reserving 3/4 cup of the stock.


Saute the garlice and shrimp and its marinade in 1 Tbs of the peanut oil.  Cook the shrimp about 1 minute per side.  Spoon it out of the wok or skillet.


Put the remaining peanut oil in the wok, add the ginger, followed immediately by the green beans. Cook, stirring occasionally,  3 to 5 minutes, then add the shrimp stock and let it bubble away for 1 or 2 minutes. Return the shrimp to the wok and stir; add the hot pepper sauce, the scallions, no-salt seasoning.  Stir and cook for 1 minute. Turn off the heat, drizzle  with the lime juice and the remaining sesame oil, and serve.
