1 teaspoon Fresh lime juice

1/2 teaspoon Baking soda

2 small Or 3 small dried -- red hot chilis

Sauce:
1/2 cup Sugar
2 tablespoons Light soy sauce
1/4 cup Mango puree
1 tablespoon Dark rum
1 tablespoon Fresh lime juice

Greens:
1 tablespoon Sherry
1 tablespoon Light soy sauce
1 teaspoon Sugar
8 cups Mixed spring greens and spinach, loosely packed
1/2 cup Cilantro or basil -- chopped

Method
Slice the shrimp lengthwise in half, rinse in cold water, and pat dry. Combine the lime juice, soy sauce, flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and egg in a bowl and mix well. Add the shrimp, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour. Mix together the scallions, ginger, chilies, and garlic in a small bowl and set aside. Mix together the Sauce ingredients in another small bowl and set aside.

Heat 2 cups of oil to 350F in a wok or deep frying pan. Add half the shrimp and stir briskly until the shrimp turn whitish-pink, 3 to 4 mins. Remove to drain on paper towels. Cook the rest of the shrimp in the same manner.

Remove all but 2 tbsp of oil from the wok, add the scallion mixture and stir at high heat until it begins to color. Add the sauce ingredients and stir until the mixture bubbles. Return the shrimp to the wok and stir to coat with the sauce for a minute or two.

Transfer to a holding container and keep warm.

Heat 2 tbsp of oil in the wok, add the sherry, soy sauce, and sugar and stir to heat through. Add the greens/spinach mixture and stir briskly at high heat just until wilted. Remove from the heat, fold in cilantro/basil and transfer to serving platter.

Place the shrimp on the greens and garnish with mango and carambola slices.
