Spicy Shrimps

This spicy shrimp recipe can be a great appetizer or a viand. With lots of spices in this recipe like red chili, ginger, star anise I’m sure your craving for a spicy seafood will be satisfied. Although the recipe calls for a sherry, which I think is not easy to find in a supermarket and you have to find an alcoholic beverage section. It can be substituted with apple cider, rice wine or I think pineapple juice.
