WATCH: How To Make Black Pepper Prawns

These peppery prawns are easy to make and just as easy to fall in love with.

Do you love spicy food? If you do, then you know that there are many ways to use chili peppers to make your food hot and spicy. There are many kinds of peppers, including fresh chili peppers, as well as the dried and ground-up versions that you can find in bottles in the spice section of your favorite supermarket. 

However, there is a pepper that doesn’t get much love when it comes to dishes but is actually quite a potent ingredient when used as more than just the secondary seasoning with salt: black peppercorns

Black peppercorns, or ground black pepper, is a potent spice! If you’ve ever bitten into a whole peppercorn accidentally, you know it’s got its own kind of heat that’s spicy but in a different way. It’s a nice kind of different from the spicy kick chilis offer a dish but is just as flavorful and delivers a kick that’s uniquely tasty on its own, too. 

These prawns are dotted with crushed black peppercorns which give it a different kind of spicy kick that’s just as delicious.
