Sesame Shrimp

Sesame Shrimp

by Pam on October 7, 2013

I wanted to make something quick and easy using ingredients I had on hand for dinner. I found a recipe at Taste of Home[1] that sounded perfect. I adapted the recipe a little bit by adding less sesame oil and fresh garlic. I was going to marinate the shrimp for 30 minutes but time got away from me and they marinated closer to 60 minutes. Unfortunately, that made the shrimp a touch salty, so next time I will only marinade for 20-30 minutes. Thankfully, the rice mellowed out the salty flavor and made this sesame shrimp great. I loved how simple this recipe was to make – perfect for a busy weeknight meal!

Combine the soy sauce, sesame oil, lemon juice, and garlic together in a large zip lock bag. Seal and shake to mix the marinade well. Add shrimp to the marinade then toss to coat evenly. Seal and place into the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.

Heat the  vegetable oil in a large skillet. Add the shrimp and a few spoonfuls of the marinade then cook until the shrimp turn pink, about 2-3 minutes. Serve on top of  rice. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onion. Enjoy.
