  • 1 pound shrimp raw, tail and vein removed, wild caught recommended




  • In a small bowl, whisk together the water and cornstarch.
  • In a small saucepan, whisk together the brown sugar, soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, ginger, and sesame oil. Slowly whisk in cornstarch slurry into the mixture.
  • Heat teriyaki sauce over medium high heat until it comes to a boil. Reduce heat until it can maintain a gentle boil and allow to cook about 2 minutes until the mixture just starts to thicken. Remove from heat.
  • Remove about 3 tablespoons of the sauce and reserve for later.
  • Add shrimp to remaining sauce and stir to coat. Add shrimp to skewers. Grill over high heat, turning once, until shrimp is done, about 5-10 minutes depending on the size of the shrimp.
  • Brush the top of the cooked shrimp with the reserved sauce. Garnish with green onion and sesame seeds. Serve with rice and a steamed vegetable.
