Pepper Shrimp Recipe Memories Of Korea!

Fiery pepper shrimp recipe with Caribbean cookbook author Chris De La Rosa. Based on our love in the Caribbean for pepper shrimp and our recent trip to Seoul Korea, I’ll show you how simple it is to make an Asian inspired pepper shrimp recipe. Bursting with heat from the scotch bonnet pepper, these plum and tender shrimp will take on bold Asian flavors with sesame oil, ginger, Soy sauce, Korean pepper paste and a hint of Soju.

For this pepper shrimp you’ll need…

1 lb medium shrimp
2 scallions
1 scotch bonnet
2 birds eye pepper
2 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 table spoon Soju
2 table spoon Korean chili paste
1 teaspoon soy sauce (light)
pinch of salt

If you decide on making this gluten free, do remember to get gluten free soy sauce and read the ingredients of the Korean pepper paste to make sure it meets with your specific gluten free dietary needs.
