So this one my dad actually used to make one when I was little. My mom and I couldn’t figure out how to make it for the longest time, but I discovered the trick when I was in college trying out an orange chicken recipe. This may be the easiest recipe on this entire site, since most of the flavor comes from marinating it (by now, I think you all may realize that I usually don’t cook proteins unless they’re marinaded). Super simple and super delicious!
Sauteed Shrimp with Green Onions
8 oz shrimp
1 tbsp onions, chopped
a sprinkle of salt, pepper, and garlic powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp vegetable or canola oil
1/8 cup of green onions, cut into 2 inch chunks
steamed white rice, to serve
- Marinate shrimp with onions, salt, pepper, and garlic powder for at least 1 hour (shrimp absorb marinades much faster than meat).
- Heat oil in a skillet on medium-high.
- Dredge shrimp in flour.
- Saute shrimp for about 2-3 minutes. Throw in green onions and saute for another 2-3 minutes.
- And you’re done!
