Orange Peel Shrimp Like the one from PF Changs

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together egg whites, cornstarch, sesame seeds, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper until frothy. Add shrimp, and toss to coat.
  2. Heat 1/4 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.
  3. Wipe skillet with a paper towel. Add orange juice, zest, 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.

Wow, this recipe is addictive! I need to order a large bag of sesame seeds so we can have this at the drop of a hat. Our orange taste was especially sweet, as I had mini Temple Oranges bursting with flavor. It only took about 1 minute for each side of shrimp. Can wait to make this again! Made for I Recommend tag, based on Karen Elizabeth's review.
