This dish is made often in our home and is definitely up there on the list of favorite asian dishes. You can make this in a large non stick skillet or wok, since the whole dish comes together in under 15 minutes you really can skip the take-out with this one.

So what are you waiting for? By the time you dial up your local restaurant, you can have this delicious and authentic stir fry on the table in no time.

You can add fresh calamari to this dish too if you’d like too since it goes really well with the shrimp. The only difference from this dish and those served in the restaurants is it typically arrives to the table on a hot sizzling hot plate.

And unlike my other black pepper recipe on this blog, we do not have to tenderize the the beef/chicken so that step is omitted here saving you more time. Black Pepper Shrimp

You are sure to see how authentic this one tastes. I hardly evey order this dish from the chinese restaurants anymore, because mine is better. Plus you do not need to feel guilty overindulging here, because this is a super healthy dish that is packed full nutrients and no msg’s.

I like to serve this with jasmine rice on the side and will use a mini rice cooker to cook the rice. Just set it and it will be ready when the dish is completed. I hope you give it a try there really isn’t much too it!
