Salt and pepper shrimp (or) calamari is a dish I frequently order when at Chinese restaurants, but have never thought to make it at home. It is the perfect appetizer or can be served as a main course. I love that the shrimp has a crispy texture even without being heavily battered. The garlic and scallions add a lot of flavor without being overpowering. I typically like things spicy, but with this dish the jalapeno is just the right amount of heat. You can make this recipe with the mixed seafood or just choose your favorite, the preparation is simple and easy.
Who doesn't like the idea of being able to prepare a meal in just one pot? I have seen a lot of buzz around one pot pasta, so I decided to try one for my family dinner. Since Asian food is a favorite in my house, I knew that was the way to go!
