Ginger Shrimp

Shrimps are perfect for hot summer days; this recipe adds an Asian twist that makes the dish fun and exciting.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon dry sherry
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 spray cooking spray
  • 2 teaspoon peanut oil
  • 1 piece ginger root, 3-inches, peeled, thinly slice, cut into julienne
  • 1 medium onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 pound shrimp, large, peeled and deveined

Directions

In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, honey, sherry and water; set aside.

Coat a large skillet or wok with cooking spray; set over medium-high heat. Add oil; heat until oil begins to shimmer. Add ginger; cook, stirring frequently, until ginger becomes fragrant and starts to brown, about 2-3 minutes. Add onions; cook, stirring frequently, until onions start to relase their moisture, about 3-4 minutes. Add shrimp; cook, stirring, until shrimp are opaque and pink, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in soy mixture; cook until well-blended and heated through, about 1-2 minutes.

Ginger Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Ginger Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chile peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
