Shell and de-vein the shrimp.

Rinse with cold water and blot dry.

Cover the black beans with lukewarm water; let soak for 5 minutes.


Combine with the minced garlic and ginger; gently crush into a paste.

Mix in the wine; set aside.

Place a wok over medium-high heat.

When hot, drizzle in half of the oil.

Add the shrimp and stir-fry until they begin to curl and turn bright orange, about 1 minute.

Remove to a dish and keep warm.

Reheat wok over medium heat; add remaining tablespoon of oil and the salt.

Add the black bean paste and sauté a few seconds until it becomes aromatic.

Increase heat to medium-high.

Add the pork and stir-fry until the morsels are no longer pink, about 3 minutes.

Add onions, peppers, sugar, white pepper and soy sauce; toss together until the vegetables begin to soften, about 1 minute.

Add the stock and keep tossing until it comes to a boil.

Stir the cornstarch mixture to recombine, then drizzle into the center of the work, stirring constantly.
