Here’s a great quick dish that comes packed with big flavor. If you’re a shrimp lover, this Shrimp with Black Bean Sauce is a must try! The other nice thing about this dish is its versatility. You can really use whatever type or style of shrimp you like. If you want to use shell-on, that's fine. If you want to use pre-cooked, that works too. Cooking times will adjust slightly depending on what you use, but by and large, feel free to go nuts!
Preheat a large wok or skillet over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and add vegetable oil, the chopped white parts of the scallions, garlic, and ginger. Stir fry for approximately one minute or until aromatic
Add the black bean sauce and garlic chili sauce to the pan and stir fry for another minute
Add water and bring to a simmer
Once the sauce begins to reduce, add shrimp and toss with the sauce. Cook for about 1-2 minutes depending on the size of the shrimp
Add the scallions and toss to combine. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes or until the scallions just begin to wilt and the sauce is reduced to desired consistency
