You can not beat shrimp as the king of fast food and this Spicy Szechuan Shrimp Stir Fry certainly ticks that box, 15 minutes prep and 5 minutes cooking time!
Krumpli is littered with quick Friday Fakeaway dinners but this spicy Szechuan shrimp stir fry is probably the quickest of all…
I have it down as 15 minutes prep and 5 minutes cooking but that is allowing for a sip of wine or beer as the prep work happens and a chat as you go, if your concentrating you can prep in 5-10 minutes which puts this recipe at 10-15 minutes from fridge/cupboard to table and it is all from scratch.
But speed aint important if it tastes crap, but it doesn’t, one of the joys of the extreme heat in a wok is the depth of flavours you can get in practically no time at all. The stand out flavour/armoa here is the Szechuan pepper corns, that characteristic ‘fizz’ provides the defining flavour profile in this shrimp stir fry and it is one I love. It features heavily in both my Kung Pao Chicken and this Szechuan Beef Stir Fry and it is one of my favourite spices, that tingle to me is magical.
