White pepper adds earthy flavor to the dish.




In China, salt and pepper shrimp is traditionally made with tongue-numbing Sichuan peppercorns. If you have some in the pantry, feel free to use them here; we opted for a combo of easier-to-find white and black pepper. The white pepper adds earthy flavor, while black kicks up the heat.

Salt & Pepper Shrimp with Snow Peas

  • 1 pound shell-on deveined raw shrimp (36-40 per pound)
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 5 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 pound snow peas
  • 1 serrano or jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced
  • 5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1. Toss shrimp with cornstarch, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper and 1 teaspoon white pepper in a large bowl.

2. Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a large flat-bottom wok or cast-iron skillet over high heat until shimmering. Add half the shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp and pink, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate with a slotted spoon. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the pan and repeat with the remaining shrimp. Sprinkle the shrimp with 1/8 teaspoon salt.

3. Add snow peas, serrano (or jalapeno) and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 minute. Add water, cover and cook until the snow peas are just tender, about 2 minutes. Season with the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt.

4. Serve the snow peas and shrimp topped with cilantro.
