Yield: serves 2
Whisk together hoisin sauce, soy sauce, water, rice vinegar, white pepper, minced ginger and chopped chives. Set aside.
Pat shrimp dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper.
Set a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 Tbsp oil and swirl around pan. Once oil is hot, add seasoned shrimp. Cook for about 60-90 seconds until shrimp is almost cooked. (Don't over cook shrimp because it will get rubbery!) Pour in soy ginger sauce. Toss to coat shrimp. Heat for 45 seconds or until sauce is warm. Remove from heat. Serve immediately over cooked rice.
In a medium sauce pot, bring water, rice, and salt to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to a simmer and cover pot. Cook for about 35-45 minutes until rice is tender and water has been absorbed. Keeping the lid on the pot, remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes. Remove lid and fluff rice with a fork. (makes about 2 1/2 cups cooked rice)
