Chinese Shrimp and Mushrooms

  • Author: Fluffy


Every now and then I’m looking to make a little something different. My instincts tell me to throw some shrimp together and make a nice seafood dish. You add in some mushrooms and you have a delightful tasting meal that will hit all the food groups. This will serve 4 people.



  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil or 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 lb. fresh shrimp (shelled and cleaned)
  • 2 cups bamboo shoots or finely sliced celery
  • 1 can (6 oz) sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. powdered ginger
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup beef or chicken broth
  • 3 to 4 cups cooked rice


  1. Heat oil in skillet
  2. Add shrimp; fry, turning frequently, for about 10 min, or until shrimp are light pink
  3. Remove shrimp, saute bamboo shoots or celery and mushrooms; add soy sauce, ginger, salt, and pepper; cook 5 min, tossing mixture lightly.
  4. Add shrimp, cook another 5 min
  5. Add cornstarch, mixed to a thin paste with a little cold water, and broth.
  6. Simmer 1 min to thicken.
