Recipes

 
 

SESAME ORANGE SHRIMP SOURCE: EVERYDAY FOOD, JUNE 2004

Using egg whites instead of whole eggs (or yolks) in the batter creates a crispier coating; cooking the shrimp in batches (so as not to crowd the pan) also helps.

PREP: 25 MINS TOTAL TIME: 25 MINS SERVINGS: 4

 

INGREDIENTS

2 large egg whites

1/4 cup cornstarch

1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

1/4 cup vegetable oil, plus more if needed

1 cup fresh orange juice

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon sugar

4 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced

DIRECTIONS

In a large bowl, whisk together egg whites, cornstarch, sesame seeds, 1teaspoon salt, and teaspoon pepper until frothy. Add shrimp, and toss to coat.

Heat cup oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Working in two or three batches, cook shrimp until golden and crisp, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Add more oil to skillet if necessary for remaining batches.

Wipe skillet with a paper towel. Add orange juice, soy sauce, and sugar. Boil over high heat until syrupy and reduced to about 1/3 cup, 4 to 5 minutes. Return shrimp to skillet; add scallions, and cook until heated through and coated with sauce, about 1 minute.

Enjoy!
