Black Pepper Shrimp

Buttery, garlicky with a bit of spice. I use freshwater shrimp for this recipe but you can also use saltwater shrimp for a richer flavor. It takes about 15 minutes to make. Easy and delicious. Let’s get started.

Ingredients:

1 pound of uncooked shrimp with shells

1 tablespoon of butter

4 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)

1 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon of black pepper

1 tablespoon of shaoxing wine

1 scallion (chopped)
