A Chinese proverb says that you should live in the city of Hangzhou for its natural beauty and historical sites, die in Liuzhou where the best coffin wood grew -- and eat in Guangzhou. Guangzhou (known as Canton in the West) is still famous for its food, and this classic stir-fry illustrates why: fresh ingredients, simply prepared, with a light hand on the seasonings. Shrimp, garlic, green onions and ginger are quickly cooked, glazed with soy sauce and rice wine, and studded with cashews. You can prepare it in a single pan while cooking the rice and have dinner on the table in 30 minutes.
A different sort of fish is the feature ingredient of our next entry. It's a fitting way to "wrap up" our seafood selections.
