Sweet & Tangy Hoisin Shrimp

Craving some Asian flavor? Here’s a recipe that combines hoisin sauce and soy sauce to create a tangy East Asian favorite. Hoisin sauce is a type of plum sauce that closely resembles the palette of a sweet and sour sauce but with a bit more depth. With shrimp, this recipe is perfect for those days that you just need your seafood fix and in under 20 minutes!

1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined
salt and black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
Optional: toasted sesame seeds, thinly-sliced green onions

20-cup multicooker
4 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Combine hoisin sauce, rice wine vinegar and soy sauce in a small mixing bowl. Whisk until combined. Set aside.

Heat oil in your Aroma multicooker and turn on the Sauté-then-Simmer STS® function. Add half of the shrimp in a single layer. Sauté for about 2-3 minutes per side, or until shrimp are cooked through and pink. Remove shrimp once cooked and then repeat with the remaining shrimp.
Once the second batch of shrimp is cooked through, add the first batch of cooked shrimp back to the saute pan, along with the hoisin sauce mixture. Saute together for 1-2 minutes, tossing until the shrimp are evenly coated and the sauce is heated through. Remove from heat and sprinkle sesame seeds and green onions on top. Serve warm over rice, quinoa, noodles, or veggies!
