Shrimp Cantonese

Mary Adams


I have had this recipe since 09/1975! It was in a McCalls Magazine. This was an advertisement for rice. The picture is right from the magazine. I'm not sure if I ever actually made this until tonight! It was so easy, I don't know why I haven't made it sooner! It is really good.

How to Make Shrimp Cantonese


  1. Blend pepper, soy sauce, chicken broth, and cornstarch. Set aside.
  2. While rice is cooking, use a large skillet, and saute shrimp in butter for 1 minute or until shrimp turn pink.
  3. Add celery and onions. Cook, stirring, for about 2 minutes.
  4. Add spinach and Chinese vegetables which have been drained. (I love the way the spinach seems to go from a colander full to almost nothing!)
  5. Cook for about 1 minute.
  6. Stir chicken broth mixture into shrimp/vegetable mixture. Cook, stirring, until sauce is clear and thickened-about 2 minutes.
