WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - Chef Chris Manning shows us how to make Szechuan Shrimp.

He presented it as a salad for the segment, but it can also be served over rice or noodles. You can also use the sauce for chicken or pork.

Szechuan Shrimp

- 8 tablespoons water

- 4 tablespoons ketchup

- 2 tablespoons soy sauce

- 4 teaspoons corn starch

- 2 teaspoons maple syrup

- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

- 1 garlic clove, minced

- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

- 1 pound U-15 shrimp, peeled and deveined

- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

Mix together water, ketchup, soy sauce, corn starch, maple syrup, red pepper, garlic, and ginger. Set aside.

Heat oil in 12-inch sauté pan over medium-high heat. Cook the shrimp 3 minutes on each side. Stir in the sauce and cook until it’s thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

Remove from heat and serve over rice.
