Instructions
  1. Blend 2⁄3 cup water, the soy sauce, wine, cornstarch and ginger in a small bowl until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a large wok or large deep frying pan over medium-high heat until hot. Stir-fry the garlic until soft, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the shrimp and stir-fry until pink, about 3 minutes. Remove the shrimp with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  4. Add the broccoli florets to the wok and stir-fry until they are bright green, about 2 minutes.
  5. Add the red and yellow pepper strips and snow peas and stir-fry until they are just tender but still crisp, about 1 minute longer.
  6. Return the shrimp to the wok. Add the baby corn, water chestnuts and green onions.
  7. Pour in the sauce mixture and stir-fry the shrimp and vegetables until the sauce thickens and boils, about 1 minute. Serve.
  8. Serve on white or brown rice.
