Hoisin sauce makes shrimp sweet

Shrimp isn't just the cheapest shellfish you can buy. It's also the most versatile, making it a great choice when you don't know what to make for dinner.

Hoisin sauce makes shrimp sweet

Shrimp is that shellfish that seems to go well with anything. You can add it to risotto for a little protein. You can add them to soup to make it a heartier meal. You can add them to a salad when you want something instead of chicken or you can eat them on their own. While I love adding shrimp to a salad or risotto, I also adore eating them all by themselves. One of my favorites choices is "peel & eat shrimp." But I also like to peel them and douse them in sauce before I cook them. These hoisin shrimp kabobs take such a minimal amount of time, they're the perfect choice on those busy, "I-just-don't-have-time-to-cook" nights.
