Fiery Asian Shrimp
Serves 4, as an entrée, 12, as an appetizer
1 lb large shrimp, deveined and peeled with tails left on (16 – 20 per lb)
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tbsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp Chinese five spice powder
1 tbsp. grated fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 tbsp smooth peanut butter
2 tsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 – 2 tsp Sriracha chile sauce (depending on preferred spiciness)
¼ cup rice wine vinegar, unseasoned
½ cup canola oil
Pepper, to taste
Combine spices in a medium bowl, then toss with shrimp and allow to marinate in dry rub for up to 30 minutes. In a large heavy skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add shrimp and sauté until cooked through (The shrimp can also be grilled over an open flame at medium high.). Remove shrimp and cool in an ice water bath. Drain shrimp before serving.
Make sauce by combining ginger, garlic, peanut butter and brown sugar in a bowl or jar and mixing thoroughly with a spoon or small whisk. When the mixture looks like a smooth paste, add the remainder of the ingredients and stir or shake well. Sauce should be slightly thick. Serve with shrimp.
