Spicy salt and pepper shrimp- -6/9/10


Spicy salt and pepper shrimp is a popular Chinese dish which we ordered frequently when dining at  Chinese restaurants.  Salt an pepper shrimps are delicious cooked and eaten with their shells on. The shells give these shrimps an amazing flavor.
The deep-fried shrimp shells turned into a wonderful orange color, while the spicy seasoning adds extra flavor. The shells protects the shrimp flesh leaving it tender and it is a nice contrast with the crispy shells . Spicy salt and pepper shrimps makes an excellent appetizer or a main course and it so easy to prepare and cook.

The dish looks amazingly good!
