Sesame ginger shrimp

Dietician's Tip

Memorize this easy marinade. It's good on chicken, tofu, tempeh, pork and beef, and makes a great dip for kebabs.

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh minced ginger
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 12 ounces shrimp, peeled and deveined

Directions

In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, oil, ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes. Add the shrimp; mix well. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for 30 minutes.

Coat a nonstick medium saute pan with cooking spray; heat to medium-high heat. Once hot, add the shrimp and saute for about 1 minute. Add half of the marinade mixture to the pan and cook for another 30 seconds. Discard any leftover marinade.
