Salt and Pepper Shrimps



Salt and Pepper Shrimps is a dish that is often served at Chinese's restaurant. For this recipe, you can also opt to deep-fry the shrimps with shell-on. This is a great dish to serve together with sit-fry vegetables, soup, and steamed rice.

350 grams Peeled & Deviened Shrimps
1 Egg White, beaten
1/2 Cup Sweet Potato/Corn Flour
2 to 3 Cloves Garlic, chopped

3 Scallions, chopped
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/8 tsp White Pepper
A pinch of 5-Spice Powder

Dip the shrimp into the beaten egg white, and then coat it with sweet potato or corn flour. Shake-off excess flour, and lay shrimps in a plate or tray. Continue the process with the remainder ingredients.

Heat the oil over medium to high heat. Deep-fry all the shrimps until golden in color. Remove and drain well on a wire strainer or paper towel. Set aside.

Lightly oiled a pan or wok over high heat. Toss in the garlic, green chilies, scallions, 5-spice powder, white pepper, and sea salt. Cook briefly, then add the shrimps, give it a quick stir and mix well. Remove and serve immediately.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
