Shrimp cooked in teriyaki sauce is tender and has the perfect mixture of salty and sweet. This quick shrimp makes the perfect Asian dinner in minutes.
Frozen shrimp can come in handy when you’re on the verge of ordering take-out but want something a little healthier and faster. My favorite thing about shrimp is that it thaws and cooks in minutes, making it the ultimate way to make a quick dinner.
This teriyaki shrimp is one of our personal favorites because it’s loaded with so much flavor and goes great with noodles, rice or a salad. You can make your own teriyaki sauce at home if you’re feeling adventurous or you can use your favorite supermarket teriyaki sauce.
