Salt & Pepper Shrimp

Rice flour is the "secret ingredient" in this dish and is used to make the flavorful coating for the shrimp. But if you can’t find it, cornstarch makes a fine substitute. Serve with rice noodles or brown rice and a sprinkle of chopped scallions.

Serves 2

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 cups thinly sliced cabbage, preferably napa (about 1/4 head; see Tips for Two)
  • 1 small red or orange bell pepper, very thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoon rice flour (see Note) or cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon five-spice powder, (see Note)
  • 10 ounces raw shrimp, (21-25 per pound), peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 jalapeno or serrano pepper, seeded and minced

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Whisk lime juice, soy sauce, sesame oil and sugar in a large bowl until the sugar is dissolved. Add cabbage and bell pepper; toss to combine.

Step 2

Combine rice flour (or cornstarch), salt, pepper and five-spice powder in a medium bowl. Add shrimp and toss to coat. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
