A mouthful of flavor is what you get when tearing into this salad. This recipe has circulated under different aliases, I believe it's called salt-pepper shrimp, one could hardly call it that, when it only asks for ¼ tsp of salt & ½ tsp of pepper.. The chinese 5 spice & rice flour is what makes this recipe happen,or is it the jalepeno? =)
