1 large onion, peeled and sliced

Drunken Shrimp...I ordered Drunken Shrimp in Hong Kong once, and I was HORRIFIED at what it was there. The waiter brought a large bowl of LIVE shrimp to the table, then poured a bottle of rice wine over them. They then sat on the table for fifteen minutes, writhing around in the alcohol while we ate another dish. The waiter then returned and lit the dish on fire so that the shrimp cooked at the table. Now, I understand putting a live lobster in a pot, but that happens in the kitchen. This Drunken Shrimp was a bit too much for me to take.
