Step 1

Prepare all of the vegetables and clean the shrimp to start. Set the shrimp aside to dry on several layers of paper towels.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add the veggies and saute for 4 to 5 minutes, until crisp tender, stirring to keep from burning. Remove mixture from the skillet.

In the same skillet, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter; when hot, add the shrimp and lightly sprinkle with garlic salt, salt, and pepper. Stir and cook for about 4 minutes or until pink. DO NOT OVERCOOK.

Add the vegetable mixture back to the skillet with the shrimp and season with garlic salt, salt, and black pepper to taste, tossing to combine. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and cook just long enough to heat through. Serve with your favorite rice, white, brown, fried, etc.
