Teriyaki Shrimp

I was in no mood to cook last night. I haven't really been in the mood to cook at all this week. However, I like to eat and so does my I drug my feet into the kitchen and whipped this up for dinner. 

1 lb shrimp (I used cocktail shrimp...already cooked), Teriyaki marinade/glaze, garlic chili sauce, long grain rice & frozen stir fry veggies.

First I made the rice.
1cup of rice & 2 cups of water....into my Pampered Chef rice cooker (LOVE this thing)

 Pop it in the microwave for 18 minutes & viola!
While the rice was cooking I threw my frozen veggies into a skillet.

While those heat up, prepare the shrimp. Pour about 1/2 cup (or however much you want) of the teriyaki glaze & about a tsp of the garlic chili sauce over the shrimp.

Mix it up.

Then pour some teriyaki sauce on the veggies.

Since the shrimp is already cooked, you only want to add it at the last minute.  You just want to heat it up, not cook it more. I tossed it in and just let it heat up for about a minute.

Serve it over the rice & that's it.

This was so easy. And it had great flavor.  I love the garlic chili adds just a hint of kick. Fantastic.


  1. Looks super easy. Will try it without the chili though. Did your little guys get to try it? I love seeing their happy smiles!

  2. The chili was really not spicey. It was just a HINT of a kick. Both boys ate it with smiles on their faces. Austin is very sensitive with spicey stuff and he didn't have an issue. :)

  3. I LOVE that chili garlic stuff - tried it for the first time about a year ago and I use it in SO many things now.

  4. I am so glad I found you blog, I tried this recipe out last night and it was a success; even though I couldn't find the chili garlic sauce!

  5. I'm glad you liked it! The chili garlic sauce can be found in the Oriental section of most grocery stores. That's where I found mine. :)
