First chop ginger, green onion, bell pepper, and carrots and put them in a bowl for later use. Chop the shrimp and put it aside.

Choose 2 relatively straight eggplants, wash them and remove the stems. Cut into round shapes about 2 inches wide, then stand the eggplants upright, lay the knife flat, and cut the whole eggplant slices into strips. Prepare a large bowl of water, and add a little white vinegar and salt. Soak the cut eggplant in the water to prevent oxidation and blackening.
