Looking for a new marinade? This one is easy to memorize and is good on more than shrimp. It's also tasty on chicken, tofu, tempeh, pork and beef, and makes a great dip for kebabs.
SESAME GINGER SHRIMP
- 6 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
- 2½ 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
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.
