Sesame Shrimp, Rice, and Edamame Tuesday

I loved this dish. Unfortunately, dad didn't like the rice... not enough flavor I guess. Here is what we made from Allrecipes.com:


  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil, divided
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 dash lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/2 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Hot cooked rice
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted


  1. In a resealable plastic bag, combine the soy sauce, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, lemon juice, garlic powder and lemon-pepper; add shrimp. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. In a skillet, saute shrimp in remaining sesame oil until shrimp turn pink, about 3 minutes. Serve with rice if desired. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
The boys ate the rice and edamame- but needed extra fruit on the side!
