Reviews for Sesame Shrimp
"This had great flavor for so little time and effort. I will definitely make this a regular! I did not put the sesame seeds on it."
"Made this tonite for dinner. This was excellent. The marinade was very good. It was a simple, quick, and easy recipe. However, I wasn't too crazy about the sesame seeds, but otherwise, this tasted very good. This is best served hot, with rice, maybe serve with green beans, and a simple, light dessert. This is DEFINITELY a keeper, and it's going in my recipe box."
