Summary Not available

  • 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
  1. Trim, de-vein and clean the shrimp as shown in the step-by-step photos

  2. Shake off any excess water and pat them dry thoroughly with a paper towel

  3. Add the shrimp to a bowl and toss with ¼ teaspoon white pepper powder and 1 teaspoon Shaoxing wine

  4. Set aside for 15 minutes while you prepare the other ingredients

  5. Mince the ginger and garlic

  6. Chop scallions and chilies

  7. Measure out your panko breadcrumbs

  8. Heat 1 cup of oil in a wok to 300 degrees F

  9. While the oil is heating, pat the shrimp again with a paper towel to ensure they’re dry

  10. Any moisture will cause the hot oil to splatter

  11. 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

  12. Scoop them out and set aside

  13. Reheat the oil to ensure it’s back up to 300 degrees F

  14. Re-fry each batch a second time, 5-10 seconds per batch

  15. Remove the shrimp to a plate and set aside

  16. 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

  17. (You can use less oil, but you also need to reduce the panko accordingly

  18. ) With the heat on medium low, add the ginger to the oil and cook for 30 seconds

  19. Then add the garlic and chilies, and fry for another 30 seconds before stirring in the panko

  20. 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)

  21. Also add the scallions

  22. Lightly toss everything together (still using medium low heat), and serve hot
