Fried Shrimp, Grilled Shrimp, Teriyaki Shrimp--That's About It

I have four employees to my name along with a few surrogates, and I have committed to making dinner for them once a month. Sometimes it's a challenge, figuring out what to make. I try to consult with them before planning a meal so that I don't run into any problems with allergies or preferences. This time around, it was pretty easy: they wanted teriyaki shrimp, and they wanted it now.

Actually, that's not exactly how it went. We sat down with some cookbooks and brainstormed a little bit, and then came to a conclusion. And the result was pretty delicious, really. 

First, I thawed some pre-cooked, deveined shrimp. Then I steamed up some frozen broccoli. Once everything was good and ready, I threw it into a frying pan with some Kikkoman teriyaki sauce (which is simple, yet very tasty) and topped it off with sesame seeds, like this:

The end result is not particularly complex, but it is certainly satisfying. I paired it with my own fried rice (the recipe for which I'll be sharing with you next week). I highly recommend this as an easy way to bring some fun to the table!


PS I wrote about a set of dishes over at What We Covet today. Please check it out! You might find that they're good for serving some of this food I've been cooking up!
