I found (and ever so slightly tweaked), this recipe from a cookbook I own called “The Chinese Takeout Cookbook” by Diana Kuan. It’s “shrimply” the best recipe for homemade Mandarin-style chili shrimp I’ve ever made, and it only takes 15 minutes from start to dinner. Pun intended.

The sauce for this Sweet Chili Shrimp with Ginger & Cilantro comes together with only four ingredients. It’s sweet, spicy, tangy, and with the garnish of fresh cilantro to finish the dish, it also has a mild hint of citrus flavor.

The steps to make Sweet Chili Shrimp with Ginger & Cilantro couldn’t be easier:

Place the shrimp, cornstarch, ginger, salt, and pepper in a large bowl and toss to coat thoroughly. In a small bowl, combine the teriyaki sauce, honey, vinegar and chili sauce.

Heat a large skillet over medium/high heat. Add the oil, shallots, and shrimp. Cook and stir occasionally until the shrimp are pink and opaque (approximately 5-7 minutes). Turn the heat down to medium and add the chili sauce mixture. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes until the sauce is heated through.
Serve the Sweet Chili Shrimp with Ginger & Cilantro over brown rice, or quinoa, and serve.

Luckily for me, as I’m sitting down and writing this post, I’m eating some of the leftovers of this dish for lunch. I’m a very happy girl because editing all these photos made me incredibly hungry for this Sweet Chili Shrimp with Ginger & Cilantro again. Sure does beat a peanut butter sandwich any day of the week.
