soft shrimp

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I recently ate in an upscale Chinese restaurant and got a shrimp dish.  The shrimp were soft as marshmallows; delicious.  What is the technique for soft shrimp?

They probably used a technique known as a velvet marinade, consisting of egg white, rice wine, and cornstarch. The shrimp is marinated a few hours, then immersed in lightly simmering water for about 20 seconds before the final cooking process in a hot wok.
