Salt and pepper shrimp is a dish taken from Sam Chao’s blog “Scrumptious Easy Recipes“. I’ve tried a few of Sams recipes now and can honestly say that if you’re looking for something quick to prepare that doesn’t lack flavour then this is the blog for you. Whats more is most of Sams recipes are so versatile that it doesn’t matter if you don’t have the exact ingredients, it will still taste as good.

My Adaptions

Shrimp – I used king prawns simply because that’s what I had in the freezer. I also guessed the measurement and counted out 12 prawns per person.

Granulated gravy – I used a Stock Pot instead as I can’t eat shop bought gravy

Sugar – I omitted the sugar (and it still tasted fab!)

I have made this recipe a number of times now and each time I make it I add more items to the pan! I find some green and yellow bell peppers, some red chilli (instead of jalapeƱos) and beef steak cut into thin strips (instead of Shrimp) also work really well. I serve mine over a bed of shredded courgette but you can easily have noodles or rice.

* If you use a stock pot to make this recipe it will be gluten-free. However if you use shop bought gravy granules you will need to check the packaging / ingredients list.

These macros are an ‘approximate’ as they are based on me making the recipe tweaked (not using stock cubes and sugar as the original recipe states, and using coconut oil to cook with).
