Salt & Pepper Shrimp with Snow Peas
In China, salt and pepper shrimp is traditionally made with tongue-numbing Sichuan peppercorns. If you have some in the pantry, feel free to use them here; we opted for a combo of easier-to-find white and black pepper. The white pepper adds earthy flavor, while black kicks up the heat.
Tip: Cooking shrimp with their shells on makes for an extra-crispy exterior (yes, you can eat them!) and luscious meat that won't dry out. Look for labels like "easy peel" for shell-on deveined shrimp. For the most sustainable option, look for packages sporting the MSC Certified Sustainable Seafood (wild) or ASC Certified (farmed) seal.
