Kung po shrimp

12 oz fresh uncooked jumbo shrimp, shelled and deveined
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon peanut oil
1/4 cup self-raising flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
cold water
3 cups peanut oil, for deep-frying
1/2 small red bell pepper
1/2 green bell pepper, cut into wedges
1 small onion, quartered
1 dried chili pepper, seeded and chopped
1 large garlic clove, finely sliced
2 teaspoons finely sliced fresh ginger
For the seasonings:
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
2 tablespoons shaoxing rice wine or dry sherry
2 tablespoons cornstarch, mixed with 2 teaspoons cold water, for thickening

1. Wash the shrimp thoroughly under cold running water and pat dry with paper towels. Place the shrimp in a bowl, sprinkle with salt and pepper and the peanut oil and set aside to marinate while you prepare the other ingredients.
2. Combine the self-raising flour and cornstarch. Sprinkle the mixture over the shrimp and toss through to coat. Sprinkle on a little cold water to create a light batter, and mix quickly to combine.
3. Heat a wok, add the peanut oil and bring to a high heat until the oil is shimmering. Reduce the heat to moderate, and deep-fry the shrimp for 3-4 minutes, gently stirring with chopsticks to separate and cook evenly. During the last few seconds of cooking, add the bell peppers and onion and cook for about 5 seconds. Remove all of the ingredients with a strainer and set aside on a plate.
4. Pour off most of the oil, leaving a good film of oil behind to coat the wok. Add the chili, garlic and ginger and stir-fry for a few seconds; then add all of the seasonings ingredients. Stir in the Cornstarch thickening and cook until velvety.
5. Return the shrimp and the vegetables to the wok, toss quickly in the sauce and serve immediately.
