Serves: 1

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 small carrot, peeled and cut into thin strips
  • 4 ounces peeled & de-veined shrimp, any size
  • sesame seeds

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a small skillet over medium heat, heat sesame oil and add minced garlic. Cook for 1 minute until softened.
  2. Add juice, vinegar, and soy sauce. Allow to cook for 5-10 minutes until thickened.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low and add broccoli and carrots. Allow to cook until slightly softened; they should still have vibrant color.
  4. Add shrimp to the pan, and cook for just a few minutes until pink. Be sure not to overcook, as they can turn rubbery easily.
  5. Remove pan from heat and serve over brown rice or zucchini noodles. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
