Good-Fortune Stir-Fried Lettuce

Be sure to dry your lettuce.  Wet lettuce will braise instead of stir-fry.

1 Tbls dry sherry

2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce

1/2 Tbls vegetable oil

1 medium sliced shallot (about 1/4 cup)

2 tsp minced peeled fresh ginger

12 oz Bibb lettuce leaves (about 4 heads)

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp sugar

1/8 tsp pepper

1. Combine sherry & soy sauce in a small bowl.  Set aside.

2. Heat oil in a large wok or heavy skillet over high heat until hot but not smoking.  Add shallot & ginger & stir-fry 1 minute until shallot begins to soften. Add lettuce and stir-fry 1-2 minutes or until it just begins to wilt.

3. Swirl in sherry mixture, salt, sugar, & pepper, and continue to stir-fry 30 seconds or until lettuce is just tender & still bright green. Serve immediately.
