Shrimp Teryaki

 

Well in working on my 30 minutes and under meals. This is such a wonderful time, as I have additional Teriyaki Sauce left over in the fridge, this made this dish so much quicker than it already is.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 lbs shrimp ( peeled and deveined) Can you tell my family loves shrimp, well me and the girls, hubby only likes fry shrimp.
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 Tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 Tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp old bay seasoning
  • 1/2 Tsp cayenne or red pepper flakes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter

Directions, season shrimp with all the seasonings, heat oil over medium high heat, brown each shrimp on each side, just about 1 1/2 minutes on each side, you will need to do this in batches, Save brown shrimp on a plate.

If you have the Teriyaki sauce in the fridge like I did, after you are done browning the shrimp add, 2 cups of the sauce, (The sauce will be really thick, so if you need to add a little water go ahead and do so, once the sauce is heated, go ahead and add the shrimp in and stir really well to combine.

If you do not have the sauce and need to make it now, then in the same pan not cleaning it, add the butter, once the butter melts, add 1/3 cup sugar, I use brown, but you can use white, stir until sugar is melted, add a pinch of fresh grated ginger ( about 1/2 tsp) mix and combine then add 1 cup water, 1/3 cup soy sauce ( low sodium),in a small bowl mix 2 1/2 tbsp of cornstarch with 3 tbsp water and mix really well till cornstarch is dissolved, pour into the mixture stirring in the meantime.Bring to a low boil while stirring constantly, once it is boiling add the shrimp back in and stir really well to combine add red pepper flakes, about 1 Tsp.
