Spicy Garlic Shrimp

This is a really quick and easy recipe that's great for a last minute meal.  It takes about 10 minutes to cook and all of the ingredients are things that are easily kept on hand. Also, check out my recipe for General Tso Chicken which has similar flavors and is just as easy to make.  Here's how to make it:

What you'll need:

2 pounds of shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 tsp rice wine vinegar
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tbsp canola oil
6 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tbsp sambal oelek
1 bunch of scallions, sliced, whites and greens separated
1/2 bunch of cilantro, chopped
Toasted sesame seeds, for garnish

In a bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, sesame oil, vinegar, sugar, canola oil and sambal.  Set aside.

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and coat the bottom with a thin layer of canola oil.  Cook the garlic and scallion whites until fragrant.

Add the shrimp and cook until pink and firm, about 5 minutes.  Pour the soy sauce mixure over the shrimp, reduce the heat to medium and cook a minute more. 

Stir in the scallion greens and cilantro, toss once more and serve immediately with toasted sesame seeds.
