Sichuan-Style Shrimp

Chinese cooks typically stir-fry shrimp in their shells for a more flavorful dish. You can do the same, but we recommend first removing the tiny legs. While rice may seem like the logical side, braised greens, such as chard or spinach, are actually just as traditional.

Serves 4

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 25 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound raw shrimp, (21-25 per pound), peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoon canola oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 large green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch dice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Sichuan Sauce, (recipe follows)

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Place shrimp in a colander and rinse under cold water. Drain and pat dry with paper towels.

Step 2

Heat a 14-inch flat-bottomed wok or large skillet over high heat until a bead of water vaporizes within 1 to 2 seconds of contact. Swirl in 1 tablespoon oil; add garlic and ginger and stir-fry for 10 seconds. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the shrimp and stir-fry until the shrimp just begin to turn color, 1 minute. Add bell pepper and salt and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Swirl in Sichuan Sauce and stir-fry until the shrimp is just cooked, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
