Wok Tea Smoked Shrimp

I learned about tea smoking from Jeff Smith.
He had a weekly PBS TV cooking show
that I was addicted to watching back in the day.
He was a good teacher and not only showed you
new cooking techniques but new foods as well.
One dish was tea smoked shrimp using a wok.
I added a few citrus ingredients and came up
with this great tasting wok smoked shrimp dish.

1 Wok with cover
1/2 pound frozen shrimp 16/20
1 fresh lemon, quartered
1 fresh lime, quartered
4 black tea bags
4 tablespoons dried rice
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
aluminum foil

Place aluminum foil on bottom of wok,
now place another layer of foil on bottom.
(You'll thank me later the the double wrap.)
Turn on the oven fan filter and open up the
kitchen windows or any you have close by.
Place prepared wok on medium low heat.
add in the quartered lemon and lime citrus,
tea from inside of the tea bags and the rice.
Now place in the wok the shrimp and cover
the wok with another sheet of aluminum foil.
Place the cover of the wok in top and wait.
After 5 minutes the wok should start a smoking.
Turn off heat and let wok settle down some
and cook shrimp only for 5 minutes more.
Serve shrimp with a soy based dipping sauce.
