Slippery Shrimp?

  • 4

For many years I went to Yang Chow in Chinatown in LA and feasted on their signature dish. Slippery shrimp is lightly fried, then covered in a sweet, spicy, lustrous orange sauce. This is probably a common Chinese dish, but I haven't seen it in New York.

Can one of you more knowledgeable foodies tell me if this is a unique dish, or can I get my fix here in New York?

Thanks!

    1. Hi Susan , did you find Slippery Shrimp in Manhattan??

      thanks

      1. never been to LA and never had Slippery Shrimp, but it looks a lot like what's served at the Chinese-Korean places. Shanghai Mong on 32nd serves something similar looking, but more heavily sauced:

        Guh Song in Queens has a dish that looks much closer to Yang Chow's, but I can't find a photo online.
