Sesame Shrimp with Wasabi Sauce
Adapted from Canadian Living Appetizer Collection
Prep time: 10 minutes
Broil time: 4 minutes
Makes 40 pieces or so
1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds
1/2 cup panko crumbs
1/4 tsp salt
2 egg whites, beaten
1 lb/450 g raw large shrimp, peeled, deveined
1/2 cup mayo (I like Hellmann's with Olive Oil)
2 tsp wasabi paste
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp fresh chives, finely chopped or green onion
1. Whisk together all the ingredients for the wasabi sauce in a small bowl and set aside.
2. Beat the egg whites in a small bowl. In a separate large plate combine the panko, sesame seeds and salt.
3. Preheat the oven to broil. Place the rack 4" from the heat element. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with greased foil. (I use PAM olive oil spray).
4. Dip the shelled shrimp in the egg whites and then place in the panko sesame mix. Pat to ensure the mixture sticks to the shrimp, turn and repeat. Place the coated shrimp on the prepared baking sheet and broil, 2 minutes per side.
Serve with wasabi sauce (which is also great on sandwiches, and as a dip for raw vegetables, etc.)
