Black Pepper Shrimp Stir Fry Pinterest

Black pepper shrimp stir fry with lots of vegetables, spicy, flavorful and so delicious!

Here’s a recipe for a quick and simple shrimp stir fry with a delicious black pepper sauce.

Black pepper seasoning is also called black curry, like all curries it is a blend of spices: Coriander, cumin, black pepper, clove, green cardamom, fennel seeds and nigella. You experience a mix of different flavors with every bite, a little heat, some sweetness, a slight aniseed flavor. We all very much liked it in my family of three.  This curry or cari comes mainly from Sri Lanka but is also widely used in Asian Cuisine. 

I found this blend of black curry online at L’Ile aux Epices, an online store specializing in worldwide spices, blends of spices, salts and sugars, dehydrated and candied fruits, a dream come true for a curious cook and baker. L’Ile aux Epices ships worldwide.

About this recipe, I just briefly sauteed a few vegetables, then sauteed the shrimp and finally made my black pepper sauce.

This stir fry is a delicious and versatile dish, budget friendly, you can make it with the vegetables you have on hand, zucchini, cabbage, bean sprouts, etc. It can also be made with pork, chicken or tofu.

Personally, I always prefer to use raw shrimp, whether fresh or frozen, as I like the flavor and texture better but feel free to use cooked shrimp.

Serve this shrimp black curry stir fry with a bowl of rice, I count about 1 cup of rice for two servings and an additional cup for the very hungry ones.
