Chile - Glazed Shrimp

I was looking at my recipe index last week and realized that the only seafood listed was the cucumber and dill salmon. We eat a fair amount of seafood (or so I thought we did), so I was trying to think of what to cook next. Tuna, rockfish or maybe some sort of fish tacos? Well, while I was perusing the Internet I came across this recipe for Chile - Glazed Shrimp and I knew this would hit the spot. I also loved that the ingredient list was rather simple, and all I needed to buy was the sesame oil and the sambal oelek (both of which can be found on the international isle at any major grocery store). These shrimp are packed with a little heat and are great served over brown rice or brown rice noodles (pictured above).

When do you add the green onions, soy sauce, honey, and sambal oelek??

I am so sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you! I am so glad you mentioned that because I completely left out that step. My apologies. You should add the onions, soy sauce, honey and sambel oelek after the garlic and shrimp. Hope this helps!
