Tossing shrimp in a sweet hoisin glaze creates delicious caramelization in the pan. By stirring a bit of ginger and green onion into the rice, we’re infusing it with fragrant aromatics. These quick tricks make for a super flavourful 30-minute stir-fry!

Preheat your oven to 400°F. Start prepping when your oven comes up to temperature!


Prep: Wash and dry all produce. In a medium pot, bring 2 1/2 cups salted water to a boil. Trim the ends of the green beans. Thinly slice the green onions, keeping the green and whites separate. Mince or grate the garlic. Peel and finely grate 1 tbsp ginger. (TIP: Use a spoon to scrape the peel off the ginger!) Cut the lime into wedges.


Cook the rice: Rinse and drain the rice in cold water, then add it to the boiling water. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer, covered, until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed, 10-12 min.


Roast the green beans: Toss the green beans on a baking sheet with a drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Bake in the centre of the oven, stirring halfway through cooking, until beans are slightly crispy, 15-17 min.


Prep the shrimp: Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, toss the shrimp, hoisin sauce, garlic, and half the ginger together until thoroughly combined. Season with salt and pepper.


Cook the aromatics: Heat a large pan over medium heat. Add a drizzle of oil, then the green onion whites and remaining ginger (or less if the kids prefer it!) Cook, stirring, until soft and slightly golden, 2-3 min. Transfer to the pot with the rice and stir to combine.


Cook the shrimp: Add the shrimp and a drizzle of oil to the same pan over high heat. Cook until the shrimp are opaque and slightly charred on the outside, 2-3 min.


Finish and serve: Serve the sesame shrimp on a bed of rice with the crispy green beans to the side. Sprinkle with the green onion, sesame seeds, and serve with a lime wedge. Enjoy!
