Ingredients

How to make it

  • Toss the peeled and deveined shrimp with the cornstarch and set aside. See Photo
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of peanut oil in a wok or heavy skillet over high heat. Add shrimp and stir-fry until shrimp is pink but not quite done See Photo. Remove the shrimp and set aside.
  • Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to wok. Heat until just before the smoking point; add the garlic, red pepper flakes and salt & pepper blend and stir-fry for 30 seconds or until you just start to smell the garlic...you don't want the garlic to turn brown or it will get bitter. See Photo
  • Add the shrimp back to the wok and toss with the spices for 30 seconds.
  • Serve with steamed rice.
Toss the shrimp with cornstarch.   Close

    This was fantastic! Mine didn't come out as coated as yours, I think cus my shrimp was too wet, but the flavor was all there. And SO easy! :) This, along with Jalapeno Chicken are about the only two things I get out if I go to an Asian Buffet....which, I rarely do,anyway. I have never made it at home. I will be,now. I have to say, I couldn't get the coveted pepper(I've tried to order it in the past, but was told it wasn't allowed??), but I used my own blend of kosher salt, multi pepper corns just a touch of cumin for the citrusy bite and black pepper. I also added green peppers and onions to the garlic oil just before the shrimp, giving them a lil time to sweeten up a bit. I finished it all with a sprinkling of black lava salt which was pretty and added just a lil more. Thank you, Witchy!!

    I love salt and pepper shrimp... so I'm glad you didn't find the squid. This looks fabulous... and it's saved. Awesome addition, Witchy!
