Fun Facts: Types of Spicy Shrimp Recipes
There are a number of options available for Asian spicy shrimp recipes! Like most Asian dishes, there is a great deal of rich history and tradition behind them and spicy shrimp is no different. For this reason, there are a plethora of traditionally Asian spicy shrimp recipes that have been around for centuries. These are the most famous:
- Hunan spicy shrimp – Hunan cuisine dates back to the 17th century and is known for spicy flavors. It is also known for being one of China’s Eight Great Culinary Traditions. You’ll find a great deal of variety in Hunan cuisine due to the abundance of agriculture in the region. These recipes are full of chilli peppers, garlic, and shallots but typically much oilier than other Chinese cuisines. Also, you’ll find a generous amount of smoked and cured ingredients in Hunan cuisine in comparison to others, with dishes that change with the seasons.
For Hunan spicy shrimp recipes, chili oil with red pepper flakes is a common theme. Chinese chefs use chili oil skillfully to provide both balance and flavor with a good amount of heat. Traditionally, the shrimp is fried in Hunan recipes. However, feel free to personalize these recipes by stir-frying or shallow frying with a small amount of oil.
- Szechuan shrimp – Also known as Sichuan cuisine, Szechuan is similar to Hunan in that a generous amount of oil is used. In fact, Szechuan is the oiliest of the two and originated in the Sichuan province in China. It is the most popular cuisine in China with rich flavors and copious amounts of Sichuan peppers. The hot and spicy flavors of these dishes are their claim to fame and are often combined with garlic, ginger, shallots, black pepper, broad bean chili paste, and of course, Sichuan peppers. These are required ingredients that intensify the flavors of these dishes are so famous for. The spices that are most commonly used are “The Five Fragrances” which include chili and Sichuan pepper, fennel, pepper, aniseed, and cinnamon and clove. Most common cooking methods for these dishes are steaming, baking, stir-frying, braising, and most commonly used fast frying.
Our Sichuan hot pot is a popular menu item and full of customizable spicy flavors you’ll enjoy. From seafood combos that include spicy shrimp to chicken combinations that include tender breast meat and tofu skin, our hot pots are delicious. If you prefer a spicy seafood dish, you’ll also want to try our Crockpot Spicy Fish Stew made with seasonal vegetables and Szechuan hot sauce.
- Chili shrimp – Spicy stir-fried shrimp with chili sauce is a popular dish created by an Iron Chef from Japan named Chin Kenichi. It is a Chinese dish that was adapted from his father, who originally introduced a version in Japan and invented the sauce. Also referred to as Ebi Chili, it is considered as part of Shanghai-style Sichuan cuisine. You’ll find this dish in Korean cuisine referred to as kkansyo-saeu.
