  • Rinse rice in cold water until water runs clear. Drain and combine with coconut milk, water, and 1 teaspoon salt in a pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Cover; reduce heat to low and simmer until tender, about 12 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork.

  • Mix prawns and 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce together in a bowl until well coated.

  • Toss asparagus with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, sesame oil, and black pepper. Lay on 1 side of the grill; cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Flip. Add prawns to the other side of the grill. Grill shrimp until opaque and asparagus is lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes more. Transfer to a platter.

  • Divide the rice between 4 plates. Top with prawns and asparagus. Sprinkle scallions and sesame seeds on top. Drizzle 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce on top.

Decent dish! The rice came out mushy so I suggest reducing the amount of water and/or coconut milk used. I enjoyed the flavor combination made by the asparagus and sesame oil. The prawns were probably the least interesting because of the other aspects of the dish (but still good!). I used Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauce and Marinade but I would suggest using a low sodium teriyaki sauce. With a few minor changes I would definitely make this again. It's a perfect recipe for those busy nights! Read More

Well.... I made something similar.... I used organic basmati rice well rinsed. To prevent clumpy sticky rice. I sauteed it lightly in organic ghee turmeric salt and ginger. I poured in organic coconut water instead of water. Added the organic coconut milk Cooked rice. It was deliciously decadent and fluffy. Then I roasted tender organic asparagus and broccolini and cut them up over the rice. I used delicate tender boneless bbq pork ribs. I cooked the veggies and pork while the rice was cooking. Sprinkled with sesame seeds and tiny slices of organic spring onions. It was so delicious. It can be paired with chicken seafood beef pork.... such a great a versatile recipe. A good tip is to prep everything before starting the cooking process so that it is all ready at the same time and you can eat it all hot. Read More

These were great. They are very salty of course. My husband did not eat the shells (we used headless) but I did, and they were surprisingly good. However, the shells were very tough when I nuked the leftovers and I had to remove the shells to eat them. But, again, great recipe and a fun change from the usual. Read More

The rice was especially good with the saltiness of the prawns in teriyaki. Read More

This is my family’s new favorite thing! I follow the recipe exactly, but I mix up an easy sauce to top it with that really takes it to the next level. I just combine some teriyaki with minced garlic, sriracha, green onion and more sesame seeds. It really elevates the flavor! Read More

Used my own teriyaki sauce recipe rather than bottled and marinated the shrimp a few hours. I also used half brown rice. After the shrimp came out of the marinade, I added a little cornstarch, brought it to a boil to thicken and put it on the table for people to use on their shrimp or rice if desired. Everyone loved it. Will definitely add this into my meal plan rotation. Read More

Super yummy! I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect! The shrimp didn't hold onto allot of the teriyaki flavor so make sure you use good shrimp ( I might marinade it next time). I used extra large black tiger shrimps and they were delicious! Who'll be making again! Read More
