2 tablespoons Chinese wine
4 thin slices unpeeled gingerroot

3. Cook on HIGH(1200W) for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Turn off the microwave when the shrimp begins to crackle. Garnish with a sprig of cilantro and serve.

* A bowl of oolong tea with a slice of lemon makes a nice finger bowl.
* Rice base cooking wine. Buy in the Asian section of the Market.
* When using plastic wrap as a cover, poke a hole in the center to release the steam.
