Vulcan's Fire Salt

Vulcan's Fire Salt


Jar, 1/2 Cup, 2.6 oz.


  • 1/4 Cup vegetable or peanut oil
  • 1 pound large shrimps, deveined, shell-on
  • 2-3 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 fresh red chili pepper, finely sliced
  • 1/4 Cup finely chopped scallions
  • 1 bunch Chinese mustard (gai lan)

Preparation Instructions:

For mustard greens:
Cut between stems and leaves. Simmer leaves in salted water until just cooked, drain, and lightly coat with oil and soy sauce.

For shrimp:
Heat oil in a wok or cast iron skillet until very hot. Pat the shrimp dry and lightly coat with flour, shaking off excess. While oil is hot, quickly stir fry the shrimp until just cooked. Add the chili pepper and toss for about 30 seconds (if the oil is very hot, the smoke may become a bit overwhelming). Turn off the heat and sprinkle on the Fire Salt. Toss to coat evenly. Scoop onto a bed of Chinese mustard greens, leaving most of the oil behind. Sprinkle chopped scallion and enjoy with hot rice or noodles.

More About This Recipe

You can substitute calamari for shrimp. It's equally delicious. Just make sure you don't overcook the calamari or it will get rubbery. Stir fry for no more than 2 minutes. A round bottom wok over a gas stove is best as this will keep the calamari pieces moving in the wok and avoid overcooking. To prepare the calamari, clean and half the tubes lengthwise. The tentacles are good as they are. Score the inner flesh in a criss-cross pattern (it will prevent too much curling during cooking). Follow the same directions otherwise.
