4 cup oil, for deep frying
1 green onions, for garnish

Recipe Preparation

A reader who requested the recipe for a sweet and pungent shrimp from
the Panda Inn in Pasadena won the everlasting thanks of our tasting
panel. Because it's as impossible to eat just one of these as it is
to eat a single kernel of popcorn, the recipe is often called Chinese

Peel and devein the shrimp. Slice in halves lengthwise. Rinse well
and pat dry. Add the egg white to the shrimp and mix well. Mix
1-1/2tablespoons cornstarch with salt and add to shrimp. Stir to coat
well. Add 1-1/2 tablespoons oil and mix well again. Place the shrimp
in a bowl and refrigerate at least 2 hours.Remove the shrimp and dust
with remaining cornstarch. Shrimp should be dry to the touch. Heat
the remaining oil in a large wok to 350 to 375 degrees. Fry the
shrimp 1-1/2 to 2 minutes until crisp, being careful to separate them
with a long- handled wooden spoon or chopsticks to prevent sticking.
It may be necessary to fry the shrimp in several batches. When done,
remove the shrimp with a slotted spoon and drain well. Combine the
shrimp and the sweet and pungent sauce and toss quickly to coat.
Immediately turn out onto a platter and sprinkle with finely chopped
green onions.

SWEET AND PUNGENT SAUCE: Combine the sugar, catsup, vinegar, and
salt, and set aside. Heat the oil in a wok. Add the garlic, ginger,
green onion, red pepper, and zests of lemon and orange; cook 30
seconds. Stir in the sugar-catsup mixture. Immediately add the
sherry mixture and cook until slightly thickened.

Food Tips of the Week

Dieting tips

In deciding on a meal plan, it is essential to also make sure you cut down your ingestion of refined carbohydrate, fat and salt.
Some reduced carb diet tips:

* Use low carbohydrate chocolate bars for cookies and muffins. If you have gone to the trouble of converting your most popular chocolate cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soya flour, it would be insane to put in those high carbohydrate chocolate chips. Break up a reduced carbohydrate bar of chocolate into little pieces and use that instead.

Superfoods containing carotenes
(includes parsley, mangos and sweet potatoes)
These colorful superfoods are rich in the carotenoids believed by many play a key role in helping stop cancer, particularly of the stomach. A good number also have a low calorie count, so are ideal for including in your diet system.
