School is OUT for summer!! I totally was the mom to take the pictures of the first and last day of school. Now four kids later and a busy life, I didn’t even make them go to the last day! ? I am so glad they are done for the summer. Right now we have a lot of fun things planned and camps coming up to keep us busy. Now we can start the count down until school starts. ?

I still try to feed my kids in the summer despite the craziness, so easy meals are a must for me. Shrimp recipes are so great because they are ready in no time at all and shrimp takes just minutes to cook. When you add a sticky asian inspired sauce, it is shrimp perfection!

How do you make Sticky Sesame Garlic Shrimp?

  • Prepare the marinade and add the shrimp to a bowl and marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Add a Tablespoon of oil to a medium-sized skillet and heat to medium-high heat. Cook the shrimp for 2-3 minutes or until pink. Remove shrimp and set aside on plate.
  • Add the marinade to the skillet and simmer until it starts to thicken and turn into a syrup. Add the shrimp back to the skillet and toss to coat. Serve over rice with green onions and sesame seeds.

How long do you cook shrimp in the skillet?

Add 1 Tablespoon of oil to a medium sized skillet and cook the shrimp for 2-3 minutes or until pink.

Can you overcook shrimp?

The exterior of the shrimp should be pink with red tails and the flesh is slightly opaque and a little “white” in color. If it is too bright white in color, then the shrimp may be overcooked.
