Saucy, Spicy and Merely Scrumptious. Through the years I’ve shared a number of pepper shrimp recipes with you all, primarily based on my experiences and normal love for this spicy seafood dish. There’s my Traditional Island Pepper Shrimp, my Reminiscences of Korea Pepper Shrimp, the Jamaican Pepper Shrimp after a visit to the island and even a Fried Rice completed with Pepper Shrimp. But I’ve by no means shared this model of pepper shrimp with you. Till now!
1 lb giant shrimp
1 tablespoon chili oil
2 scallions (sliced)
3 Jalapeño peppers (sliced)
1 Pimento pepper (sliced)
1 lemon (divided) | 3/4 cup water
1/2 cup tomato ketchup
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
salt (see notice)
1 teaspoon darkish soy sauce
1 teaspoon Sesame oil
1 medium onion (giant cube)
4 cloves gallic (crushed)
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce
6 chicken’s eye pepper (sliced)
Notes! Please observe together with the video beneath. That is meant to be a spicy dish, however you possibly can tailor the warmth degree to your individual tolerance. I defined why I didn’t add any salt to the dish within the video beneath, nonetheless it’s possible you’ll add 1/2 teaspoon or so on the finish, do you have to want.
Peel, devein and wash the shrimp with cool water and the juice of 1/2 the lemon.
Warmth the oil (if you happen to can not supply the chili oil, use veg oil) in a saucepan on a medium flame, then add the onion, Jalapeño and Hen’s Eye peppers and prepare dinner for two minutes. Then flip the warmth all the way down to med/low and add the Pimento pepper, garlic and ginger.
After 3 minutes it’s possible you’ll now add the chili garlic sauce, tomato ketchup, black pepper, soy sauce and Sesame oil. Stir effectively. Add the water and produce to a boil, then cut back to a simmer.
Together with your warmth at med/low, add the shrimp to the pan and stir effectively. The purpose is to prepare dinner it for 2-3 minutes, then flip the range off so the residual warmth will proceed cooking issues. Strive your greatest to not over prepare dinner the shrimp.
As you flip off the range style the sauce for salt and regulate to your liking. Add the chopped scallions and end with the remaining lemon juice. Do you have to need to add 3/4 teaspoon of white sugar to the sauce for a candy and spicy kind of end, be happy to take action.
As we mentioned within the video it’s possible you’ll add bell peppers and thinly sliced carrots to the dish if you want. In the event you favor utilizing Habanero, Scotch Bonnet or every other spicy peppers aside from the Hen’s Eye, it’s your alternative yea.
I get pleasure from this as a snack, however it’s wonderful served with rice.
