A recipe from the P.F. Chang's-Inspired Meal Plan by Tasty Tactics

Salt & Pepper Shrimp

Servings: 1

Prep Time: 6 minutes

Cook Time: 5-10 minutes

Ingredients (per serving)

  • 6 Ounces shrimp (raw, frozen)

  • 1/3 Cup cornstarch

  • 1/2 Cup vegetable oil

  • 2 Teaspoons garlic, minced

  • 2 Teaspoons ginger, graded

  • 1/2 Teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 1 Teaspoon Kosher salt

  • 1 Teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 Individual green onion, chopped

  • 1/2 Cup rice, cooked


  1. Follow package instructions to prepare the rice (optional).

  2. Set a wire rack over a baking sheet.

  3. Add the shrimp to a colander and thaw in the sink using a slow stream of cold running water. Drain the thawed shrimp on paper towels and pat dry.

  4. Heat the oil in a wok or large pan until it reaches 400°F (200°C).

  5. Place the cornstarch in a large bowl. Add the shrimp and toss until well-coated.

  6. Fry the shrimp, in small batches, for 2 minutes, or until light golden brown. Transfer to the wire rack to drain.

  7. Leave only a teaspoon of oil in the wok, draining the remainder. Add the ginger and red pepper flakes and toast for 2 minutes, until the ginger starts to brown. Add the garlic to the wok and fry for 10-15 seconds, until golden brown.

  8. Add the cooked shrimp and toss to combine. Season with the salt and pepper and toss until well-coated. Transfer the shrimp to a plate and garnish with the green onion and fried garlic.

  9. Serve over cooked rice.
