Heat oil in a wok or a deep fryer on high heat.
Mix together potato flour, white and black pepper and salt in a plate or small bowl. Lightly toss 10 shrimp at a time in the potato flour mixture, shaking off any excess. Cook the shrimp carefully in the hot oil, until it's pink in colour (about 3-5 minutes). Remove and allow to drain on paper towel on a plate. Repeat until all shrimp is fried. *Optional - keep the shrimp on a baking tray in the oven to keep warm in between cooking batches.
Put about 1-2 tablespoons oil in a wok over medium high heat. Flash fry green onion, red chilli peppers, and garlic cloves for no more than 2 minutes. Add the shrimp into the onion mixture and mix together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
