10 Minutes Quick & Easy Shrimp & Vegetable Teriyaki Dinner Recipe
We all know just how difficult it is sometimes to get home after a long day of work and have to prepare an entire meal for dinner. When I get home from work, I just want to lay down and close my eyes for a few minutes which, usually never happens. By the time I finish contemplating what I’m going to prepare for dinner and what I have in the fridge, it’s time to go pick up my daughter from daycare. One thing, (besides pasta) that is my easy and quick ”go to” dinner is shrimp. Shrimp can be prepared in so many different ways but no matter how you make them, they can always be cooked and ready to eat in under 10 minutes. Another ingredient that I often love to use to make a quick tasty dinner is Trader Joe’s “Soyaki Sauce”. It really is the best thing to use when you get bored of the same repetitive meals and just want to add a different flavor. I use this sauce to make chicken teriyaki, ground turkey teriyaki, and even fried rice.
Here’s what you’ll need:
•1 Bag of Uncooked Shrimp
•Garlic Powder •Paprika
•1 Bag Frozen Stir-Fry Vegetables (Trader Joe’s)
•Broccoli Florets •Trader Joe’s Soyaki Sauce
•Trader Joe’s Soy Sauce
•Olive Oil or Butter
1) I made this dish over brown rice so, the first thing I did was to get the rice cooking, since it takes longer to be ready.
2) Put the amount of broccoli as desired in a pot with water and a little garlic powder.
3) I like to wash with warm water and remove the shrimp tails of the shrimps before I cook them but, this part is not necessary.
4) Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil or butter to a pan. Wait about 30 seconds for the oil to heat up and then add 1 tablespoon full of minced garlic to the pan.
5) As the garlic begins to sautée in the pan, marinate the uncooked shrimps with salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and paprika.
6) When the garlic begins to turn golden-brown, throw in the vegetables stir-fry in the pan and let it sautée for about a minute.
7) Next, throw in the uncooked shrimps in the pan and stir. Let the shrimps cook for about 6 minutes or until you achieve a pink/reddish color.
8) As the shrimps cook, drain the broccoli out of the boiling water.
9) Add about 1/2 cup of soyaki sauce and 1/3 of a cup of soy sauce to the pan. Throw in the broccoli florets to the pan and stir.
10) Let it all simmer for about 2 minutes and serve as desired.
