This dish is similar to a dish Mom made when I was little. It's simple, tasty, and quick to make. And delicious, as long as you like shrimp and onions!

I also have a newer recipe that adds spinach to this dish.

Serves 1. Multiply as necessary.

cooking oil, such as peanut or canola
1 medium to large white onion, thinly sliced
4 oz. shrimp, shelled, deveined, tail removed and cut into small bite-sized pieces
1 tbsp. garlic, minced
1 tbsp. ginger, minced
1 oz. sake
1 tbsp. sugar
soy sauce

Heat a sauté pan over medium heat. Add the oil to coat the bottom thinly.

Add the sliced onions and cook for a few minutes until softened. Add the shrimp, garlic and ginger and cook until the shrimp are cooked through, a couple minutes.

Add the sake and sugar. Stir. Add soy sauce. Serve with rice.
