 Ingredients List

  • 2 tb Salt
  • 1 lb Large shrimp
  • - unpeeled and deveined
  • 2 ts Coarse or kosher salt
  • 1 ts Roasted Sichuan peppercorns
  • -(ground)
  • 1 ts Sugar
  • 2 tb Finely chopped garlic
  • 2 ts Minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 tb Finely chopped scallions
  • 2 Fresh red chile peppers
  • - coarsely chopped
  • 2 c Peanut oil; for deep frying


TO CLEAN THE SHRIMP, remove the feathery legs and blot the shrimp dry with
paper towels. In a small bowl, combine the coarse salt, peppercorns, and
sugar and set aside. In another small bowl, combine the garlic, ginger,
scallions and the chopped chilies. Heat a wok or deep skillet until it is
hot and add the oil. When the oil is very hot and smoking, add the shrimp
and deep-fry for about 1 minute or until they are pink. Remove them
immediately with a slotted spoon and drain well. Pour off all but 1 1/2
tablespoons of the oil and reheat the wok. Add the salt-peppercorns-sugar
mixture and stir-fry for 10 seconds. Add the garlic-ginger-scallion-chiles
mixture and stir-fry for 10 seconds. Return the shrimp to the wok and
stir-fry over high heat for about 2 minutes until the spices have
thoroughly coated the outer shell of the shrimp. Transfer the shrimp to a
serving platter and serve at once.
