Unrecipe of the Week

February 25, 2012

Lately, it seems that every time I ask what to get at the fish market, the answer comes back “shrimp!”

It’s certainly a quick and easy ingredient that adapts to many different types of seasonings and preparations.  It’s extremely low in calories, and cooks up in a matter of minutes.

I went searching for inspiration for a new way to prepare them and found a recipe for Stir Fried Shrimp with Spicy Orange Sauce.

With a few little tweaks and substitutions to the original, here is our version of tonight’s dinner:

Sauteed Shrimp with Spicy Orange Sauce

In a small bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons orange juice, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, ¾ tablespoon of honey, 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar and 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce* and set aside.

Toss 1 pound of shrimp, peeled and deveined, in a little bit of cornstarch.

Sauté 2 cloves of fresh minced garlic, and some fresh minced ginger in a little canola or peanut oil until soft. (This will take less than a minute)

Add the shrimp, and sauté another 3 minutes or so, until they are cooked.

Add the sauce to the pan, and cook until it starts to thicken, about 2 more minutes.

Serve over brown rice and enjoy!
