Ingredients

  • 1 lb jumbo shrimp

  • 8-10 cloves of garlic (minced)

  • 6 shishito peppers (you can use any peppers, even thai)

  • 1 tbsp whole Szechuan peppercorn

  • 1 cup cooking oil

  • 3/4 cup corn starch

  • chili flakes (optional)

Directions

  • Heat oil in a skillet on medium. In the meantime, coat the shrimp in corn starch.
  • Once the oil starts to smoke, fry the shrimp on each side for 30 seconds and set aside on a paper towel.
  • In a wok, heat 2 tbsp oil from the skillet, and add in the garlic. 
  •  As it starts to brown slightly, add the peppercorn and the peppers.
  • When the garlic has browned and the peppers blistered, add the shrimp and toss until everything is evenly coated. 
  • Serve with a side of rice and soy sauce.
