Honey Sesame Shrimp

Honey Sesame Shrimp


11/2 lb jumbo shrimp, peeled and de-veined

5 Tbs dark sesame oil

3 Tbs rice wine or dry sherry

41/2 tsp honey

3 Tbs soy sauce

41/2 tsp Nashville Spice Company Sesame Seeds

1/2 tsp Nashville Spice Company Chinese Five Spice Powder

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 slices peeled fresh ginger,

1/4-inch thick

2 scallions, sliced for garnish



Rinse shrimp under cold water and pat dry.

Combine 3 Tbs sesame oil, rice wine, soy sauce, honey, Nashville Spice Company Sesame Seeds, and Nashville Spice Company Five Spice Powder in a large bowl and whisk to blend. Stir in garlic, ginger, scallions whites, and shrimp and toss to coat, then cover and marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour.

Remove shrimp from marinade. Add remaining 2 Tbs of sesame oil. Remove the garlic, ginger, and scallion whites. Place marinade in a pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and cook uncovered until it is a thick, syrupy glaze. Set aside.

Heat grill to high. Grill shrimp, 2 minutes per side. Liberally brush on the glaze as they cook.

Place shrimp on serving plate, top with scallions, and serve.
