Easy Hoisin Glazed Shrimp – Tender shrimp with a 3 ingredient, sweet and salty glaze – you will love this 5 ingredient, 15 minute meal meal!
Ever since my life has gotten a little bit more hectic with school and otherwise, I’ve been keeping an eye out for quick, tasty recipes. Normally I’m the girl who will spend 2+ hours to make something, but lately I’ve been wanting to keep it simple. BUT it still has to taste good.
Enter this shrimp! It doesn’t get much easier than this; super easy sauteed shrimp, tossed with a slightly sweet and salty glaze (and spicy if you wish!), serve it over some white rice, and you’re good to go.
I am also in the editing process of a video of making this recipe – That’s also why I wanted to keep it quick and simple – sometimes it’s no fun filming a big, elaborate recipe! I’m trying to get back in the YouTube game, and I’ll do my best to be a good girl and post a couple recipes/videos per week 🙂
I already have my next video planned…apple. pie. oatmeal. How good does that sound? I’ve made it so many times for my boyfriend and my parents, but I’ve never posted the recipe or the video recipe! It’s also perfect because it’s juuuust starting to cool down a little bit. You know what that means? Blankets, hot cocoa, boots, and LOTS of fall recipes! Mm, I can’t wait.
You guys are going to love this recipe – it’s easy, and versatile (my favorite)! See my notes after the recipe to see all the ways you can spice up this simple, tasty recipe.
Easy Hoisin Glazed Shrimp
Barely changed from Gimme Some Oven
- 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
- 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
- 2 teaspoons soy sauce
- 1/2 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
- Salt and black pepper
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (or canola or olive oil)
- Toasted sesame seeds, for garnishing
- Mix together the hoisin sauce, rice wine vinegar, and soy sauce together in a small bowl. Set aside.
- Pat the shrimp dry with a paper towel, and season the shrimp with salt and pepper.
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp to the skillet, and cook until golden-brown on each side and cooked through, about 45-60 seconds per side. Add the hoisin sauce mixture to the skillet. Saute together for a minute, tossing until the shrimp are coated with the glaze and everything is heated through.
- Remove from heat and sprinkle the shrimp with sesame seeds. Serve warm over rice, noodles, or stir-fried veggies.
- Some suggestions for additions to the recipe – a splash of sesame seed oil for a boost of nutty flavor, drizzle of sriracha for a little bit of heat, or thinly sliced green onions for a little crunch and brightness.
