pepper shrimp Recipe
If Thai-style fried rice noodles are my first favorite, this garlic pepper shrimp is my second favorite. The first time I ate this dish was in a small shop on the roadside in Thailand, which was opened by a British uncle. There is a cow in the store, and a little brother named Charlie with a very beautiful smile. A fried shrimp is 100 baht, which is equivalent to about RMB 20. There are 10 prawns in one serving. First, we have one serving for two, then one serving for one person, and then I can eat three servings by myself. There is no air-conditioning in the uncle’s shop, otherwise I think I can eat five servings in one breath. I tried the recipe many times before it came out, and it looked like the one I had in Thailand. It’s very simple, basically you won’t overturn the car, don’t worry about cooking.

Tips & Variations
1. The prawns should be big, otherwise they won’t taste good. The shrimp is headed, tailed, and gut removed.
2. If you don’t have coconut oil, you can use ordinary home oil.
How to make pepper shrimp
1. I used white prawns this time.
Wash the coriander and prepare it, as shown in the picture, with thick roots, and the stems without long leaves at the top of the roots. The other stems with long leaves are chopped up.
Peel the garlic and smash it.
Put the reserved coriander roots and stems and garlic cloves into a grinding pestle and mash them. Take a big bowl and use a rolling pin to mash it.
2. Our grinding pestle.
3. The green on top of the shrimp is what it looks like after mashed coriander and garlic.
Put the prawns in a plate and sprinkle with salt and pepper. I personally recommend sprinkling more pepper. Then mix in the chopped coriander and garlic, mix well, and marinate for 20 minutes.
4. After 20 minutes, pour in the flour and mix well. This picture is not very good-looking.
Pour oil into the pot, slightly more. I use cold-rolled coconut oil because I think this is the best fried one.The oil I poured is almost half the amount that can submerge the shrimp.
After the oil has heated up on medium-high heat, add the shrimps and turn them over after a minute or so. I turned almost every prawn twice before it came out of the pan.
Lay out coriander leaves and serve.
5. If you like, you can also eat it with Thai sweet chili sauce.
