“This is my version of Madame Wong's "Lobster Cantonese". I came up with this when my husband asked me to cook one of his chinese restaurant favorites, 'shrimp in lobster sauce'. I know it looks like a long list of ingredients and steps but once you have all the ingredients ready, the cooking goes fast.”
