Salt & Pepper Shrimp

EatingWell Serves Two

Rice flour is the “secret ingredient” in this dish and is used to make the flavorful coating for the shrimp. But if you can't find it, cornstarch makes a fine substitute. Serve with rice noodles or brown rice and a sprinkle of chopped scallions.

I was skeptical about this combination of shrimp over slaw over rice noodles, but this recipe was exceptionally tasteful, resembling Vietnamese food, which we have a lot of in Oklahoma City. Just for kicks, am going to try with rice next time. Pat again in OKC.

I just tried this recipe for

I just tried this recipe for the first time. It turned out great! I used cornstarch and did not have a problem with it. Next time I will omit the jalapeno and just do scallions as suggested. Jalapeno made it too spicy for me and almost too spicy for my husband that loves spicy foods. I will use this recipe again for sure!


Make this! You will not be dissapointed, I promise!!


This is a simple and delicious meal. The jalepenos give it a nice little kick at the end. My husband absolutely loved it!


I haven't tried this yet, but intend to, because in addition to all the other categories it falls into, it also appears to be gluten free. I was so surprised to see rice flour listed as an ingredient. Is is possible for you to start including gluten free receipes or substitutes once in a while?
