Instructions Checklist
  • Cut off feathery legs and hard pointed area right above the tail of each shrimp. Rinse shrimp and dry thoroughly.

  • Combine salt, pepper, and 5-spice powder in a small bowl.

  • Heat oil in wok or a heavy pot over high heat until your deep fry thermometer reaches 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Cook shrimp, about 5 per batch, in the hot oil until shrimp are bright pink and cooked through, about 1 minute. Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Return oil temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) before each new batch.

  • Discard the oil in the wok and heat wok over medium-high heat; add deep-fried shrimp and spice mix and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Cook's Note:

A special equipment need is a deep fryer thermometer.

Carefully pour your very hot cooking oil in to a heat-proof bowl to cool down before you discard.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

Super easy and delicious. I bought Ultra Pure deveined tail off raw shrimp and thawed it. I did do the oil fry then dry pan fry. I didn’t lose my seasoning to the oil and it seared the shrimp to perfection. I served over minute rice flavored with a couple tablespoons of Maestros Curry Fury sauce (out of Pittsburgh but you can buy online. All their sauces are to die for!) Dish tastes complex but is done in a jiffy! Read More

Great as written really. I do however feel you could save yourself a step and season your shrimp on the first fry and it would pick up enough flavor to ditch the second fry but that is just my opinion... Read More
