Shrimp & Shiitake Stir-Fry
Pink shrimp, red cherry tomatoes and bright green snow peas make this stir-fry as pretty as it is tasty. If you like, substitute asparagus, cut into 2-inch lengths, for the snow peas. Serve with rice noodles and a salad of thinly sliced cucumbers and rice vinegar.
Notes: The “cooking sherry” sold in many supermarkets can be surprisingly high in sodium. We prefer dry sherry, sold with other fortified wines in your wine or liquor store.
