Saucy Gingered Shrimp with Zucchini & Red Peppers
Mirin, a sweetened Japanese cooking wine, adds a sweet accent to the fresh flavors of this shrimp and vegetable stir-fry. Carrots and turnips are good cool-weather substitutes for the zucchini and peppers.
Note: Mirin is a sweet, low-alcohol rice wine essential in Japanese cooking. Look for it in your supermarket with the Asian or gourmet ingredients.
Cream sherry is a fortified wine used to flavor sauces. Find it near other fortified wines in your wine or liquor store. Opened bottles will keep in a cool, dry place for months.
