Classic Dry-Fried Pepper and Salt Shrimp

Shrimp dishes are traditionally served during Chinese New Year celebrations to symbolize joy and happiness. This classic dry stir-fry from Grace Young's "Stir-Frying to the Sky's Edge" cookbook omits any stock or sauce to create a more concentrated shrimp flavor, with accents of garlic, ginger, chiles, and Szechuan peppercorns.

    This was a great segment! My daughter in law is Chinese and I am always looking for authentic dishes to make for her. Since her mother is a fantastic cook, I always feel a bit intimidated about trying something new with her. Now I won't! Thanks for an informative and enlightening program. I am anxious to try this!

    Thank you Martha for having Grace Young on your show, I enjoyed watching your whole show, and thank you Grace Young for sharing with us that rinsing the shrimp first in cold salt water makes them shrimp crunchy. Great to know!!! I will have to try this recipe, it looks delicious.
