1.  Prep all your food first and make the sauce. You want everything ready to go because the stir fry takes about 5 minutes and it goes quickly.

2.  Heat 1Tbs of canola oil in a large wok pan on high heat. Then add your sliced onions and cook for 1 minute. Next add your ginger/garlic and sauté for another 30 seconds.

3.  Next add your peppers and chiles and stir fry for another 30-45 seconds.

4.  Add your drained cans of water chestnuts and straw mushrooms now and stir fry for another 30-45 seconds.

5.  Now add your cleaned shrimp and stir fry for 1 minute.

6.  Then add your prepared stir fry sauce and stir fry for another minute.

7.  Add your cornstarch and water slurry (that's the two mixed together into a water paste). Allow the gravy to boil and thicken for 1 minute. Your shrimp should be cooked now. Finally add your fresh spinach and toss with the hot stir fry for a few seconds to wilt. Turn stove off.

8.  Serve over steam brown or white rice. Enjoy.
