Skewered Sesame Shrimp

Skewered shrimp is easy to turn during cooking; you can also saute shrimp on their own. Note: These shrimp are perfect with buttered rice or noodles and sauteed greens. Regular or sugar snap peas would also be a good choice.

  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds

Add skewered shrimp, and cook until shrimp are opaque, about 3 minutes on each side. Transfer skewers to a plate.
