Number of Servings: 1


    Shrimp, cooked, 3 oz
    Honey, 1 tsp
    Ginger, ground, 1 tsp
    Chili garlic paste, 1/4 tsp
    Sesame Seeds, 1 tsp

Mix together Honey, Ginger, Chili Garlic Paste, and Soy Sauce.
You can use raw or cooked shrimp, toss it in the mixture and let it sit while you toast sesame seeds.
Spray a pan and toss in the mixture. Stir fry till heated through, or pink if you started with raw shrimp.
Plate and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Excellent with shredded, steamed cauliflower, steamed broccoli, or rice.
Today for only an extra 75 cals I added 1/2 c snow peas, some thinly sliced onion and yellow bell pepper, 1 clove garlic, and a bit of soy sauce. Satisfying bowl of YUM.

    "Divinely spiced" according to my honey, the avid shrimp fan. I sauteed them with sliced mushrooms, bell pepper and scallions and served over quinoa. Will be repeated in our house for sure, and I look forward to trying it with other proteins. Thank you! - 11/8/10

    This was VERY tasty. We placed the warm shrimp mixture over a cup of baby spinach for a "warm salad." Also added snow peas, red peppers, and a bit of onion. Very versatile - will try again with a bit of peanut butter taste. - 1/19/11

    I substituted Thai Red Curry paste for the chili paste and it was delish! If you use raw shrimp to start with then you have less chance of overcooking the meat and turning it rubbery. - 5/6/08

    Perfect! I couldn't find the paste and used 1 tsp of sweet chili sauce instead. I tossed in a clove of minced, sauteed garlic to make up for the missing paste. - 3/29/08

    I used agave nectar instead of honey and added some soy sauce to offset the sweetness. You can use sriacha sauce (rooster sauce) for the chili garlic sauce. And I used ginger paste. It turned out tasty. - 2/11/10
