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.

  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!)
