This is the hottest shrimp dish in Wuhan this season! Although the seasoning is a bit incomplete, but fortunately the shrimps are fresh enough, home-style hospitality is definitely enough. I believe many friends here can make them with their eyes closed. Well, even if you close your eyes, I still want to send it to you. Who makes this the hottest crayfish in Wuhan?

2. Wash the crayfish with a brush, take out the shrimp thread or cut off the shrimp gun according to the cooking habits. I didn't do this step because the friends who ate the shrimp this time have special requirements to be complete. Of course, the high-quality water crayfish can be cooked directly after scrubbing;

3. Rapeseed oil cools and detoxifies. Compared with lard and salad oil, I chose rapeseed oil. Pour enough rapeseed oil into the pot to heat up, add pepper and dried chili to stir out the red oil, remove the onion, ginger, garlic and saute, then add licorice, angelica, cumin, nutmeg, and cinnamon in sequence , Bay leaves, star anise sauté;

7. Finally, add green peppers and onions to enhance the flavor. After the green peppers and onions are cooked until they are broken, season them according to personal preference for spicy and salty taste.

1. Personal experience, for medium-sized crayfish, the cooking time is controlled at 15~18 minutes, and the shrimp meat can be kept in a springy state. Over time, the texture and taste of the shrimp meat will be poor.
2. If you think it is troublesome to prepare auxiliary materials, you can buy the finished thirteen-flavored lobster seasoning bag (the kind that can see various spices). It is not recommended to use compound seasonings, because real ingredients are healthier!
