Poached Shrimp With Dipping Sauce


  • 40 large shrimp, peeled (remove vein if you like)
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 1 star anise
  • 1 tablespoon Sichuan or black peppercorns
  • 5 slices ginger
  • ½ cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil

    40 shrimp


    1. In a large saucepan, combine shrimp, 3 cups water, soy sauce, anise, peppercorns and ginger. Bring to a boil, then turn off heat and let sit, undisturbed, for about 30 minutes. If you are not serving right away, refrigerate shrimp in liquid; recipe may be prepared to this point a day before serving.
    2. When ready to serve, drain shrimp, and put on a platter. Whisk together hoisin and sesame oil in a small bowl; serve shrimp with this sauce.
