1/8 cup of red peppers, chopped
1/8 cup of Spanish onions, chopped
1/8 cup of green onions, chopped
1 Tablespoon of minced garlic

Sauce
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of sugar

Directions:
Take your shrimp and season with salt. Dredge the shrimp in the egg then corn starch and deep fry in about a 1/2 cup oil (chef uses 100% soy bean oil or canola oil) until the texture is a light golden brown (approximately 2-3 minutes). While shrimp are frying, add 2 teaspoons of oil, garlic and vegetables to the hot wok. Saute vegetables and add the remainder of ingredients, including the shrimp from fryer.
