Stir-Fried Shrimp with Cashews

From Essentials of Cooking

Note: There is no separate listing of ingredients or yields because, as the article explains, you choose your own amount of ingredients.

Heat peanut or vegetable oil in a wok. Add aromatic ingredients—slices of ginger and garlic—to flavor the hot oil and remove with a slotted spoon as soon as they begin to brown.

Add the remaining ingredients—shrimp (see note), cashews, chopped jalapeno (wear gloves when chopping and don't touch your eyes during or after) and julienned bell peppers—all at the same time. Cook until just cooked through. Serve immediately.

Note: Peterson writes, "You need to devein shrimp only if the intestine is full of grit. To see if deveining is necessary, devein a couple of shrimp and inspect the intestines. If they are clean, don't bother with the rest. If the shrimp have heads, twist them off....Peel off the shells (optional).

If you do need to devein, cut down the back of the shrimp with a small paring knife, exposing the 'vein' (actually, the intestine). Pull the intestine out with the knife."
