Stir-fried Black Pepper Shrimps

by Edwan S. on Fri, April 12, 2013

Cook this up for dinner tonight. It’s super simple, takes not time to make and you can always sub it with bigger prawns for more bite!

Serves 2- 3 people

Best eaten on a cold, rainy day. The black pepper gives it quite a kick, just nice to warm you all over.

This recipe also works well with other seafood such as mussels, clams, squid and even fish fillets.
