Easy Salt & Pepper Shrimp Recipe

Salt & Pepper Shrimp Recipe

One of my favorite Chinese seafood dishes is Salted Pepper Shrimp, we used to order it every time we dined at a Chinese restaurant.  Since I found a recipe for it we can enjoy it at home.  I modified it to fit our tastes and I think made it a bit simpler to make.  Served over steamed white rice it’s yummy!

Ingredients:
1 lb.  Medium to Large shrimp – peeled and deveined
1 tbls. sea salt
1/2 cup corn starch
2 tbls. ground white pepper
2 tbls. ground black pepper
1 tbls. garlic powder

3 tbls. chopped green onions
2 tbls. minced garlic
1/4 +  cup peanut oil

Directions:

Place shrimp in a small bowl and cover with warm water
Add sea salt and let soak for 30 minutes to 1 hour

Salt & Pepper Shrimp

In a shallow bowl mix together corn starch,  1 tbls. each of white and black peppers, and garlic powder

Drain shrimp and lightly pat dry with a paper towel

Heat peanut oil in wok or large frying pan on medium heat until hot

Coat each shrimp in cornstarch mixture and place in wok

Cook until shrimp turns pink – turn halfway for even cooking – you may need to add more peanut oil if it gets too dry

Place cooked shrimp on paper towel to drain – Do not turn stove off

If pan is dry add a tbls. more peanut oil – add mince garlic and stir until it starts turning golden

Add fried shrimp back into pan

Add chopped green onions and stir til green onions turn bright green and starts to soften

Remove from heat and serve over white rice

Enjoy!
