Ingredients

  • 1 jalapeno pepper chopped
  • 1 serrano pepper chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped
  • 12 ounces baby corn (canned is good)
  • 2 tablespoons chili oil (or use olive oil)
  • 1 pound shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes optional for extra spice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sesame Seeds (for garnish)

FOR THE SWEET AND SPICY TERIYAKI SAUCE

  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chili flakes optional if you want spicy
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons mirin
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

Instructions

  • Make the teriyaki sauce first. To a small pot, add soy sauce, water, brown sugar, chili flakes, honey, garlic, ginger, sesame oil and mirin.
  • In a small bowl, swirl together cold water and cornstarch until you have a thin slurry. Pour into the pot and stir to incorporate.
  • Bring to a quick boil, then reduce heat and simmer 3-4 minutes to thicken and allow the flavors to develop.
  • Next, heat a large wok or pan to medium heat and add 1 tablespoon chili oil.
  • Add the peppers and baby corn and cook about 6-7 minutes to soften. Transfer the veggies to a plate and reserve.
  • Add remaining chili oil to the pan. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper and toss them into the hot wok. Cook them a couple minute per side until they are nicely pink and cooked through.
  • Add cooked vegetables back to the pan with about ½ cup of the teriyaki sauce, or more as desired. Stir and heat through about 5 minutes.
  • Serve on plates and enjoy.
  • Keep the remainder of the teriyaki sauce in the fridge in a sealed container. Use it for your next meal!

Notes

Makes about 2 cups teriyaki sauce. Meal serves 4.
Serve with prepared noodles or steamed rice if desired.
Heat Factor: I got some pretty good heat here with the serranos and jalapenos. If you're looking for a hotter version, incorporate more serrano peppers, or bring in a habanero pepper or one of equivalent heat. To tame the heat a bit, skip the serranos altogether and stick with the jalapeno peppers.
