Serves 4-5 people
1 pound to 1.25 pounds of shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup of red bell pepper, sliced
1 cup of snap peas
1 cup of cauliflower rice or quinoa or rice, cooked
1 teaspoon, garlic powder
1 teaspoon, onion powder
1 Tablespoon, sesame oil
zest of 1 orange
1-2 teaspoon, sesame seeds
1-1/2 cups to 2 cups of fresh orange juice
1/4 cup honey
1 -2 Tablespoon of Tamari or soy sauce
1 Tablespoon of sesame oil
2 teaspoon of sriracha
1 teaspoon of onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Chop the red bell peppers and get all ingredients ready, this is a quick meal and everything needs to be prepped first before you start.
In a bowl, mix the citrus sauce. Start with the only 1-1/2 cups of orange juice and only 1 Tablespoon of Tamari, then taste and adjust to your liking. If you want more citrus-y flavor add orange juice, if you want sweeter add more honey, etc. Set aside.
Clean the shrimp and pat dry. Add sesame oil to a large pan that has been heated on medium high heat. Add shrimp once the oil has heated, add salt and powders to the shrimp and let cook about 2 minutes on each side.
Remove shrimp to towel lined plate and then add about 1 teaspoon more of sesame oil and then add the vegetables. Let everything cook for about 3-4 minutes only, mix well. Add the shrimp back in and pour the sauce over the entire pan. You might not use all of the citrus sauce, adjust to your liking.
Mix well, let cook for 2-3 minutes to let all the ingredients come together. Top with orange zest and sesame seeds.
Serve in bowls and enjoy immediately
This sauce can be easily changed to accommodate you, if you want spicer add more Sriracha, I would not add more soy sauce.
This is not a thick sauce, no cornstarch in this sauce, a simple healthy sauce.
Chicken would be a great option as well
Feel free to substitute any vegetables and rice, this is just a good base to begin with.
Make sure to chop all the vegetables first before you start this dish, and make the sauce.
