This flavorful Sesame Cilantro Shrimp dish, is served over rice, and done in about 10 minutes.
A while back I was fortunate enough to do a review on the new Taste of Home cookbook. I made Slow Cooked Chicken Enchilada Soup, it was amazing.
In the meantime, I have littered the cookbook with post it notes, marking all of the recipes I wanted to try. I knew that this one would be on the short list though.
Dinner in 10 minutes — and it’s a seafood dish?! YES, Please!
I’m not sure why I don’t prepare seafood at home more often. It’s sort of one of those things that we typically go out for. This recipe was CRAZY easy — and I think it made a really pretty presentation, too.
The recipe simply starts with Asian Toasted Sesame dressing. The shrimp gets cooked in the dressing, served over rice and sprinkled with fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime.
How easy is THAT??
My entire family loved this one — it’s going in the regular rotation for sure!
- 2 Tablespoon + ½ cup Asian Toasted Sesame salad dressing, divided
- 1 pound uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails removed
- ¼-1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- 3 cups prepared rice
- 1 lime, cut into wedges for serving
- In a large skillet, heat 2 Tablespoons dressing over medium heat. Add shrimp and stir to cook for about a minute.
- Stir in the remaining dressing, continue to cook, uncovered, until shrimp turn pink. About 1-2 minutes.
- Dish rice onto each plate, or a shallow bowl, divide shrimp and sauce over each rice portion. Sprinkle with cilantro, serve with lime wedges.
