Hi guys! It’s Kelley back from Chef Savvy! Today I am sharing with you this Easy Hoisin Shrimp.

Hoisin sauce is one of my favorite ingredients to use in Asian dishes. It’s thick and sweet and is perfect for marinades and stir frys. You can find hoisin sauce at most grocery stores in the Asian isle.

This Hoisin Shrimp is ready in under 10 minutes and requires only 4 ingredients. Simply pan fry the shrimp and toss with the sauce. Serve as an appetizers or over rice or noodles to make it a meal.

Serve with a sprinkle of sesame seeds, green onions and enjoy!
