Chicken and Shrimp Stir-Fry in Oyster Sauce (Happy Union)
In China, shrimp are symbolized by the "dragon" which represents manliness, wisdom, strength and kindness and chicken is symbolized by the "phoenix" which represents femininity, serenity, grace and beauty. Together they represent the happy union of men and women
Combine this happy union with broccoli, Chinese mushrooms, and scallions in a tasty oyster sauce and you have a delicious meal.
Boneless chicken breasts are thinly sliced and marinated in soy sauce and cornstarch and then blanched. Then the slices are stir-fried with shrimp, broccoli and Chinese mushrooms in chicken broth seasoned with oyster sauce and served over steamed rice.
Of course you could substitute asparagus or snow peas for the broccoli. You could also use crimini mushrooms, button mushrooms or a combination of several different mushrooms in place of the Chinese mushrooms.
