Wok Wednesdays: Classic Dry-Fried Pepper and Salt Shrimp

I love shrimp. And love dry stir-fries.  The best of both worlds!  This was very simple to make.  Fresh shrimp, garlic and ginger. Red chili peppers.  I would love to make this dish when we are in Maui where everything is fresh. Living in Charlottesville, we are limited in fresh seafood. Consequently, we eat mostly meat.  In Maui, it's only fresh fish. For breakfast/brunch/lunch, we usually get the fresh catch benedict or fresh catch sandwich on a baguette at Market Fresh Bistro.  Then, there's fish tacos.  We have had it all: monchong (sickle pomfret), mahi-mahi, 'ahi (yellowfin tuna), shutome (broadbill swordfish), 'Opah (moonfish), ono (wahoo), and salmon.  It was only this year that we discovered the shrimp food truck, Geste in Kahului. For $12 you get a boat load of spicy garlic shrimp with a scoop of rice. Ono! (delicious in Hawaiian). This has to be my second favorite way to prepare shrimp.

It's so important to use fresh seafood in this recipe since it's what makes the recipe. The garlic, ginger and peppers really brings out the flavors of shrimp.

This is perfect dish as an appetizer, or as a meal! I love this shrimp with a cup of jasmine rice.
