Garlic-Ginger Shrimp Stir-Fry

Family traditions often vary classic recipes. In this case, there's no soy sauce in the stir-fry-rather, the shrimp is salted first, a fantastic adaptation that causes the shrimp to become a little firmer, almost crisper over the heat.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 1/2 cups stir-fry and 3/4 cup rice)
