Need dinner quick? Try delicious, Simple Szechuan Shrimp! This EASY, Asian-inspired meal can be cooked and on the table in about 15 minutes total!
Measure sherry, soy sauce, sugar, salt, catsup, sweet chili sauce, and red pepper flakes into a small bowl. Whisk the ingredients together, until mixture is smooth, and sugar has dissolved. Set sauce aside while you stir-fry the shrimp.
Pat peeled and de-veined shrimp dry, using paper towels. Get as much moisture off shrimp as possible. Heat peanut oil (or olive oil) on medium-high in a heavy skillet. Once oil is hot, but not smoking, add shrimp, garlic, green onions, and minced ginger to skillet. Stir-fry on medium-high, stirring often to cook all sides of the shrimp until they turn pink and are cooked through. This only takes 3-4 minutes.
As soon as shrimp are cooked through, give the reserved sauce a stir, and then pour it into the skillet. Stir well, to cover everything with sauce. Cook for one minute, stirring often, so the sauce and shrimp are fully heated through. Remove pan from heat. Serve immediately on top of rice, garnished with sesame seeds and additional green onions, if desired. Enjoy!
