Asian Drunken Shrimp Recipe

If you can get your hands on some fresh live shrimp, this is a delicious way to prepare peel-and-eat shrimp. This recipe is extremely simple, and only calls for a few ingredients. 


  • 20 fresh live shrimps
  • 1 250 ml bottle Chinese Rice Wine
  • 2 slices of ginger


Rinse the shrimp under running cold water. Add them to a deep bowl and pour wine over them, completely submersing the shrimp. Cover the bowl, and allow the shrimp to soak up the wine. Put a medium sized pot of water on the stove and bring it to a boil. Add ginger. Remove shrimp from wine and add to boiling water and stir. Once water returns to a boil, cook for one and a half minutes and immediately pour them through a strainer. Serve with soy sauce for dipping and enjoy!
