Salt and Pepper Shrimp

Okay, so this dish isn't exactly a baked dish or a dessert. However, the fiance loves this dish and I made it several times and I never even photographed it. So I just had to, and decided to share the recipe with everyone.

If you ever ordered salt and pepper pork chops, or salt and pepper shrimp at an asian restaurant, this tastes just like it. Coated in a light dry batter and deep fried. It's actually delicious, despite the deep-fried factor. I hope you enjoy it too. It's a very simple recipe.


Recipe:

Ingredients:
1 lb Shrimp, peeled and deviened
Oil

Coating:
1/2 tsp White Pepper, ground
1/2 tsp Black Pepper, ground
1/2 cup of Cornstarch + pinch of flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp of MSG (optional)

Stir Fry Mixture:
2 Green Onions, chopped
1 Jalapeno Peppers, sliced
3 Glove of Garlic
Salt and Pepper

Directions:
Place shrimp in coating mixture, toss to combine and coat.

Heat oil in a pot until 350F. Cook about 5 to 6 shrimps at a time until pink in color. Cook remaining shrimp in batches. Drain off in paper towels.

Place some oil in a wok, and heat until hot. Throw in stir-fry mixture (no salt or pepper yet), and stir fry until pungent. Put the shrimp into the work and stir-fry for about 30 seconds. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.

When frying these up, what kind of oil do you use and how much?

Hi. I use vegetable oil. I use just enough oil to cover the shrimp in a small sauce pan. Probably about a cup. You may need more if you use a bigger pan.
