No matter whether you are already a fan of Chinese cuisine or simply looking for a new way to cook shrimp you will love this quick and easy dinner. The secret to making this stir fry super flavorful is a mixture of bold, potent spices with bright vegetables and peppers. The star of the show and a must have ingredient is Sichuan pepper or peppercorns to be exact. Its unique flavor defines the dish and gives it it’s name.
This dish is delicious and can be prepared in 25 minutes from start to finish. You can also adjust the level of spiciness depending on your personal taste. The stir fry is extremely fragrant thanks to the aromatics like garlic, shallots and ginger. They really help with building up the flavors together with Szechuan peppercorns.
The sauce is sweet, spicy and savory, a classic Chinese combination.
I love how the crispy broccoli floret texture compliments the shrimp. Bright colored red peppers really enliven this stir fry making it look really pretty. You can serve this authentic dish with Jasmin rice or keep it low carb. The long exotic ingredient list might seem intimidating at first but really it is all the basic stuff you can find at any asian market. Once you buy all the ingredient you will be able to make any of your favorite asian dishes because a lot of the time the ingredients like soy sauce, sesame oil and Shaoxing wine are the same. This dish is tasty and pungent. It will make your kitchen smell heavenly while you cooking it. The hardest part is to wait for the shrimp to be ready.
