  2. Add the shrimp to a medium bowl. Cover with cold water and let sit until thawed, about 10 minutes.
  3. Drain the thawed shrimp on paper towels and pat dry.
  4. Place the cornstarch in a large bowl. Add the shrimp and toss until well-coated.
  5. Heat the oil in a wok or large pan until it reaches 400°F (200°C).

  7. Fry the shrimp, about 6 at a time, for 2 minutes, or until light golden brown. Transfer to the wire rack to drain.
  8. In a clean wok or large pan, add the ginger and red pepper flakes and toast for 2 minutes, until the ginger is starting to brown.
  9. Add the shrimp and toss to combine. Season with the salt and pepper and toss until well-coated.
