Sesame Shrimp with Ginger Broccoli serves four in 20 minutes! It is quick to make and a healthy, delicious alternate for deep-fried shrimp.
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
1-1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon Sriracha chili sauce
2 large egg whites
1/2 cup whole-wheat panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
1-1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled & deveined (tails on)
2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil, divided
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1 tablespoon sliced garlic
1 tablespoon finely chopped peeled fresh ginger
2 (12-oz) broccoli heads, cut into florets, stems attached
1/4 cup water
In a shallow dish, whisk together the brown sugar, Sriracha chili sauce, and egg whites. Combine panko and sesame seeds in a shallow dish. Working in batches, add shrimp to egg mixture; dredge in panko mixture.
Heat 1-1/2 teaspoons canola oil and 1-1/2 teaspoons sesame oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add half of the dredged shrimp; cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 mins per side. Remove from pan. Repeat the procedure with 1-1/2 teaspoons canola oil, remaining 1-1/2 teaspoons of sesame oil, and remaining half of the dredged shrimp. Sprinkle cooked shrimp with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon canola oil in the pan over medium-high. Add garlic and ginger; cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add broccoli; cook until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Add 1/4 cup water; cover and cook until crisp-tender, about 2 to 3 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Serve with shrimp.
*Serving size is about eight shrimp and one cup of broccoli.
