Salt and Pepper Shrimp
Level: Easy
Total: 25 min
Active: 20 min
Yield: 4 servings

2 teaspoons (10 grams) kosher salt
1 tablespoon (30 grams) chicken bouillon powder
1 teaspoon (5 grams) sugar
1/2 teaspoon (5 grams) white pepper
1 1/2 pounds (600 grams) large shrimp, unpeeled
2 quarts (1.8 liters) vegetable oil for deep frying, plus 2 tablespoons for stir-frying
1 cup (240 grams) cornstarch
2 tablespoons (30 grams) garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon (10 grams) ginger, minced
1 red jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced with seeds
2 tablespoons (60 grams) scallions, finely chopped


In a small bowl, combine the salt, bouillon powder, sugar and white pepper and reserve.
Rinse the shrimp under cold water, then drain them quickly in a colander. Leave them moist to absorb the cornstarch to make a crust.

Heat the oil in a 6-quart Dutch oven or pot until the oil reaches about 375 degrees F. Add the cornstarch to a large bowl, dredge the shrimp in cornstarch and then shake off the excess. Deep fry the shrimp for 2 to 3 minutes in three small batches. Drain on a sheet pan as you are heating your skillet or wok.

While the shrimp are cooking, heat a large skillet or wok to high and spoon in 2 tablespoons (30 grams) of oil. When the first wisp of white smoke appears, stir in the garlic, ginger and jalapeno and cook for about 30 seconds until light brown.

Toss in the fried shrimp, reserved sugar-and-salt mixture and scallions. Continually toss the shrimp to coat well, 1 to 2 minutes. Once the shrimp are heated through, plate the shrimp and top with crispy bits from the pan.
