White Boiled Shrimp (白灼虾) Recipe
1 lb live shrimp
Water for boiling
2 tablespoons soy sauce (add 1 teaspoon of hot water to dilute it)
Sliced green chilies
Rinse the shrimp thoroughly. Mix the dipping sauce ingredients together. Set aside.
Bring water to boil. Transfer the shrimp into the water, cover it, and boil the shrimp until cooked, about 2 minutes.
Transfer the shrimp out with a slotted spoon, serve immediately with the soy chili dipping sauce.
If you like, you can add a few slices of peeled ginger and a tablespoon of Chinese rice wine (for example: Shaoxing wine) in the boiling water before boiling the shrimp.
