Sesame Garlic Shrimp

Well, Newman's Own has another marinade that is really tasty (Stop 'n' Shop has them on sale for 2 for $5). The Sesame Ginger is very good with beef, chicken and, as I found out, shrimp. I let it marinade for about 1 hour for more flavor, and tossed whatever vegetables I had. Of course, I had zucchini (and will for a while longer), plus I had leftover peas in the fridge. If you want, you can add chopped green or red pepper, broccoli or carrots when adding the zucchini in this recipe. I served it over brown rice, but you can serve it with anything. Also, it can easily be doubled.



Sesame Ginger Shrimp
Serves 1

8 large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/3 cup Sesame Ginger marinade
1 medium zucchini, diced
1/4 cup green peas

Place the peeled shrimp in a resealable plastic bag. Add the marinade. Place in the refrigerator and let marinate for 1 hour.

Spray a large skillet or wok with nonstick cooking spray. Add the zucchini and sauté over medium heat until softened and lightly browned around the edges, about 3 minutes. Add shrimp and marinade. Cook, stirring constantly, until shrimp are pink and cooked through, and zucchini are softened, 6-8 minutes. Add peas, and continue cooking until heated through, about 1 minute. Serve immediately.

(Each serving is 5 pts.)
