Black Pepper Shrimp
Black pepper shrimp – garlicky and buttery shrimp in a savory black pepper sauce. An easy recipe that takes 20 minutes, so delicious!
I am back with another amazing and mouthwatering Asian recipe that is sure to knock your socks off, this super easy black pepper shrimp recipe that calls for simple ingredients but rank very high in the taste department.
This is an adaptation from the popular Malaysian black pepper crab recipe on Rasa Malaysia. In Malaysia, many local dishes are “fusion” dishes in the sense that we marry western ingredients with local ingredients and the cooking method is also a “fusion” of east-meets-west techniques.
At a glance this dish could be passed off as non-Asian dish, but the addition of oyster sauce, Chinese rice wine (either regular rice wine or Shaoxing rice wine) and scallion make this black pepper shrimp an Asian concoction, with a stronger and “umami” flavor profile. I love these shrimp with steamed rice as well as plain pasta such as Parmesan garlic noodles, or simple spaghetti. It’s very delicious!
