  • 450 g Shrimp large whole head-on shrimp ((450g))
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper powder
  • 2 teaspoons wine⁣⁣⁣
  • 2 inch ginger
  • 7 garlic cloves
  • 2 scallions
  • 3 chilies
  • 250 g breadcrumbs
  • 250 g oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon spice powder


  • Trim, de-vein and clean the shrimp as shown in the step-by-step photos
  • Shake off any excess water and pat them dry thoroughly with a paper towel
  • Add the shrimp to a bowl and toss with ¼ teaspoon white pepper powder and 1 teaspoon Shaoxing wine
  • Set aside for 15 minutes while you prepare the other ingredients
  • Mince the ginger and garlic
  • Chop scallions and chilies
  • Measure out your panko breadcrumbs
  • Heat 1 cup of oil in a wok to 300 degrees F
  • While the oil is heating, pat the shrimp again with a paper towel to ensure they’re dry
  • Any moisture will cause the hot oil to splatter
  • When the oil is at temperature, fry the shrimp in two separate batches (this prevents the temperature of oil from dropping too much), for about 15 seconds per batch
  • Scoop them out and set aside
  • Reheat the oil to ensure it’s back up to 300 degrees F
  • Re-fry each batch a second time, 5-10 seconds per batch
  • Remove the shrimp to a plate and set aside
  • Turn off the heat, and carefully scoop out some of the oil into a heatproof container, leaving about 1/3 cup oil in the wok
  • (You can use less oil, but you also need to reduce the panko accordingly
  • ) With the heat on medium low, add the ginger to the oil and cook for 30 seconds
  • Then add the garlic and chilies, and fry for another 30 seconds before stirring in the panko
  • Add in the shrimp, salt, sugar, the remaining ¼ teaspoon white pepper, 1 teaspoon Shaoxing wine, and 1/8 teaspoon five spice powder (if using)
  • Also add the scallions
  • Lightly toss everything together (still using medium low heat), and serve hot
