You all know by now that I love shrimp and I'm always trying out new ideas. Last night I basically took what was in the fridge and created this dish.
It's a quick and easy main dish that will satisfy! And it only took 10 minutes to throw together.
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 lb asparagus, cut into 1 inch pieces
- 1/2 container of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
- Sesame seeds; scallions; optional
For the sauce:
- 3 tbsp. reduced sodium soy sauce
- 1 tbsp. grated ginger
- 1 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp. brown sugar
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- If your shrimp is frozen, throw it in a bowl covered with cold water to defrost in the fridge. Peeled and devein, if necessary. Set aside.
- In a large measuring cup or a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, ginger, vinegar, sugar, garlic, cornstarch and sesame oil. Set aside.
- Have your asparagus and tomatoes ready to go.
- Heat olive oil in a large skillet over med-high heat. Add shrimp and stirring, cook until just pink. Add asparagus and tomatoes, stirring, until tender, about 5 minutes.
- Stir in soy sauce mixture, stirring to combine well. It will thicken in a couple of minutes.
You're done! I served mine over brown rice, topped with some diced scallions. Next time I need to remember the sesame seeds!
