Lemon Pepper Shrimp

I was a little worried that Randal wouldn't like these lemon pepper shrimp as he usually only likes shrimp if they are fried and served with tartar sauce, but he actually really liked this, we both did!

1 lb medium shrimp
½ cup cornstarch
1 cup vegetable oil
1 lemon, sliced
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic
½ teaspoon fresh ginger
1/3 cup soy sauce
¾ cup water
2 teaspoons cornstarch
¼ cup dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoons course ground black pepper

Place the 1/2 cup of cornstarch into a plastic bag, add the shrimnp and let sit for 5minutes.

Heat the cup of vegetable oil in a wok, add the shrimp and fry for about 4 or 5 minutes, until cooked through. Remove shrimp and discard the oil.

Heat the 1 tablespoon of oil in the wok, add the garlic, ginger and sliced lemon and stir fry for a minute. Add the soy sauce, combine 2 teaspoons of cornstarch in 3/4 cup of water and add to the wok. Add the brown sugar, lemon juice and black pepper, cook for another minute or two. Remove from heat, add the shrimp and coat in the sauce, serve immediately.
