WHAT IS PEPPER SHRIMP
Black Pepper Shrimp is a popular Chinese dish that is made with shrimp and a mixture of vegetables that is typically served with rice or on it’s own. It has a special sauce that it is made in, which makes it super tasty!
In which I will share with you below in the recipe card!
This dish is made in our home often and is definitely up there on our 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 tonight 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 Black Pepper Shrimp stir fry on the table in no time.
You can always add fresh calamari to this dish as well if you’d like. And if your really feeling bold, go ahead a throw a chicken breast in too.
The only real difference from this dish and those served in the restaurants is that this 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 anything so that step is omitted here.
We hardly ever order this dish from the restaurant anymore, because mine is better. That is unless we know the restaurant well and know they make it just as good.
Plus by eating this type of dish, you never have to feel guilty by overindulging. Because this is a super healthy meal that is packed full nutrients and contains should no msgs. Just make sure the soya sauce you use says that on the label and you will be in business.
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 ahead of time and it will be ready when the dish is completed.
I hope you give it a try there really isn’t much too it!
