Description

Thanks to a simple marinade and a quick toss in a skillet, these shrimp are seared to tender perfection and coated in a sticky-sweet spicy sauce.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 lb. raw shrimp
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • olive oil for cooking

Marinade

  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce or soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of sesame or olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 inch hunk of ginger, grated
  • 5-6 cloves of garlic, minced

Instructions

  1. Mix ingredients for the marinade in a large bowl. Add shrimp and toss to coat. If desired, allow to marinate in refrigerator for up to 4 hours. It's not necessary, but obviously the shrimp will be more saturated with the marinade.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil on medium in a large cast iron skillet [wok or non-stick skillets will work, too]. Add green onion and sauté until soft.
  3. Add shrimp and cook for 4-6 minutes until shrimp are cooked through. They should look white and start to curl up. Don't overcook – they will become rubbery and tough.
