Stir-Fried Shrimp with Garlic and Green Beans

1 lb. large shrimp, shells on
1 cup water
1 ½ tsp. sugar
2 TBSP. soy sauce
1 clove garlic, sliced
1 tsp. salt
1 TBSP. dry sherry
2 tsp. sesame oil
¾ lb. green beans, trimmed
2 TBSP. peanut oil
2 TBSP. minced garlic
1 TBSP. peeled and minced fresh ginger
¼ tsp. chili-garlic paste
¼ cup minced scallions, green and white parts
Juice of ½ lime

Peel shrimp and simmer the shells for 5 minutes.
Drain and reserve ¾ cup of the liquid.
Marinate shrimp in mixture of ½ tsp. sugar, 1 TBSP. soy sauce, garlic, salt, sherry, and 1 tsp. of sesame oil.
Parboil the beans for 1 minute, then plunge them into ice water.
If they are large, cut them in pieces.
Preheat wok or 12 inch skillet over medium-high heat.
Add 1 TBSP. of peanut oil and raise heat to high.
When it begins to smoke, add the garlic, the shrimp and its marinade.
Cook shrimp 1 minute on each side.
Spoon shrimp out of wok or skillet.
Put the remaining peanut oil in wok, still over high heat, and when it smokes, add the ginger, followed immediately with the green beans.
Cook, stirring occasionally, until they are lightly browned, then add the shrimp stock; let it bubble for 1 to 2 minutes.
Return the shrimp to the wok or skillet; add the chili-garlic paste, scallions, and the remaining sugar and soy sauce.
Cook 1 minute.
Turn off heat, drizzle with the lime juice and the remaining sesame oil and serve.
Serves 4.
