Sesame Shrimp With Wasabi Sauce

READY IN: 24mins
Recipe by woodland hues

One of the starring appetizers in Canadian Living's cookbook The Complete Christmas Book. Prep time may take a bit longer depending on ease of peeling the shrimp. If wasabi paste isn't available, and powdered wasabi is, mix 4 tsp powder with 2 tsp water to form a paste.
