Spicy Shrimp Saute

Add some spice to your night with this quicker than takeout meal.  Even better, the marinaded shrimp also are great on the grill when cooking for a crowd

1 cup soy sauce
1 tsp sambal oelek
1 1/2 tsp agave nectar or honey
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp minced ginger (ground works too if you don’t have fresh)
1 tsp sesame oil
6 large shrimp
1 cup green beans
Olive oil

In a bowl, mix together the first 6 ingredients.  Add the shrimp and let marinade for at least 10-15 minutes prior to cooking.

Place a skillet over medium heat and warm the olive oil.  Once heated, add green beans and saute for 3-4 minutes (normally you’d want to blanch the green beans first but I was just too lazy and didn’t want to deal with any extra dishes to do!)

After 3-4 minutes,  remove the shrimp from the marinade and place them in the skillet. Cook for 1 -2 minutes on the first side until pink then flip and cook for another minute before adding the marinade to the skillet.  Continue cooking for another 2 minutes.  Remove and serve!
