Grilled Shrimp & Fried Brown Rice with Homemade Spicy Teriyaki Sauce


Grilled Shrimp & Fried Brown Rice in Homemade Spicy Teriyaki Sauce


1 lb shrimp - peeled & deveined

1 scallion - chopped - as garnish

For the spicy Teriyaki sauce

2 cups unsweetened pineapple juice

2 TBS mirin

1 TBS dark soy sauce

1/2 cup soy sauce

4 garlic cloves - minced

3 TBS fresh ginger - minced

2 TBS toasted sesame oil

2 serrano peppers - seeded & minced (optional)

2 TBS honey

1 tsp dry mustard

1/2 tsp white pepper

2 scallions - chopped 

1 TBS of corn starch whisked & dissolved into 1/4 cup water


Heat all the Teriyaki sauce ingredients (except the cornstarch & water blend) in a pan over high heat.  When boiling - add the cornstarch water & whisk in.  Lower heat a bit & keep it at a light boil until it begins to thicken.  Cook until it is the consistency you prefer.  I kept it pretty thin.  Remove from heat & COOL.

Clean your shrimp & then marinate them in the COOLED Teriyaki for as long as possible - at least an hour.  The longer the better.

When ready to serve - grill the shrimp either on a grill or in a pan treated with cooking spray.  Serve them over my Easy Fried Brown Rice with an extra drizzle of Teriyaki sauce & some chopped fresh scallion.  


Easy Fried Brown Rice

6 cups brown (or other) rice – cooked & cooled

1 lime – cut into wedges (optional) – as garnish

Extra scallions as garnish

S&P to taste


Heat the oil in a large wok or other large pan.  When very hot, add the red bell pepper.  Saute a minute or two & then add the garlic & ginger & shallots.  Saute another few minutes & then just add everything else except the rice & the lime.  When the vegetables are tender – add the rice.   When the rice is well coated & heated through, season with S&P & serve with lime wedges & additional scallions.
