Ingredients

Instructions

  • Pat shrimp dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper.
  • Place the flour in a small bowl. Whisk the egg with sriracha and honey in another bowl.
  • Combine panko breadcrumbs, toasted sesame seeds and ginger in a third bowl.
  • Dip the shrimp in the flour, shaking off excess, then into the egg mixture, then in the panko sesame mixture.
  • Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon avocado oil and ½ teaspoon toasted sesame seed oil. Place half the shrimp in the skillet and cook until opaque, 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from pan and cook the remaining shrimp with the remaining avocado oil and toasted sesame seed oil; set aside keeping warm.
  • In the same skillet, add the broccoli and cook until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Add water to deglaze the pan if needed, and continue cooking broccoli until crisp tender, 2-3 more minutes.
  • Serve the sesame shrimp with the broccoli immediately

Notes

Storage: Let the leftovers cool completely and store them in an airtight container in the fridge. It should stay fresh for up to 2 days. 
Reheat: Add back to your skillet on low heat to reheat. You can also reheat in the microwave but be careful not to overcook the shrimp.
