Directions

Step 1
Season the Shrimp (1 lb) with Corn Starch (1 Tbsp) , Salt (1/4 tsp) , and Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp) . Mix to combine.
Step 2
Finely dice the Scotch Bonnet Peppers (2) .
Step 3
Finely dice the Scallions (3) .
Step 4
Heat the Vegetable Oil (2 cups) for ‘frying’ on medium-high. Since the shrimp is coated with the cornstarch they may tend to stick together. Fry for a minute or so and set aside. Do not overcook.
Step 5
In a new pan heat the Vegetable Oil (2 Tbsp) on a very low heat and then go in with the scallion, Garlic (3 cloves) , and scotch bonnet peppers. We want to gently allow the flavors to come together. Cook on low for 3-5 minutes, then add the cooked shrimp and toss well to coat. Since it’s important that we don’t over-cook the shrimp, as they heat through you can take the pot off the stove.
Step 6
Serve warm for the best flavors. If reheating, its best to do so in the oven and not a microwave. Enjoy!
