Recipe by: Goody Kitchen
Mix 2 tbsp soy sauce and the cornflour in a large bowl. Add the shrimp then set aside for 2 minutes.
Heat the oil in a wok set over a high heat. Fry the shrimp in batches for 2-3 minutes each, using a slotted spoon to turn them over halfway through cooking. Carefully remove from the oil and drain on kitchen paper.
Remove all but 2 tbsp oil from the wok. Add the onions and pepper, cook for2 minutes, then stir in the garlic and ginger. Cook for 1 minute more, mix in the sugar, vinegar, remaining sauce, and the ketchup. Bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer—the sauce should be thick and glossy. Tip the shrimps into the sauce then stir through the chopped coriander.
Serve the sweet and sour shrimp with cooked rice and prawn crackers on the side.
