How to Make Spicy Salt And Pepper Prawns

  • Pull the soft legs off the prawns (shrimp) but keep the body shell on.
  • Dry well on absorbent kitchen paper (paper towels).
  • Place the prawns (shrimp) in a bowl with the soy sauce, rice wine or sherry and corn flour (corn-starch).
  • Turn the prawns (shrimp) to coat thoroughly with the mixture and leave to marinate for about 25-30 minutes.
  • To make the spicy salt and pepper, mix the salt, ground Szechwan peppercorns and five spice powder together.
  • Place in a dry frying pan (skillet) and stir-fry for about 3-4 minutes over a low heat stirring constantly to prevent the spices burning on the bottom of the pan.
  • Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
