Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  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.
  3. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Add more oil to skillet if necessary for remaining batches.
  4. 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.
  5. Return shrimp to skillet; add scallions, and cook until heated through and coated with sauce, about 1 minute.

So I have been itching to make this recipe since I saw it in Eating Well Magazine. I made it as written (although I did add the zest of one orange to the sauce). That being said, next time I make it I will not bread the shrimp. . .wasn't necessary in my opinion and just added calories. DH and I agreed it was good, but not great. Served it atop just a little white rice with a side of broccoli and a small Korean cucumber salad.

This is my husband's favorite way for me to cook shrimp and he requests it often. The only thing I do different is to double the sauce. We like having extra to put over white rice.
