  • Meanwhile, heat peanut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear shrimp until starting to firm up, about 2 minutes per side. Remove shrimp to a plate.

  • Add sherry, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger paste to the skillet. Cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add broth, soy sauce, and sriracha. Cook for 4 minutes. Add butter and let melt, about 1 minute.

  • Return shrimp to the skillet and cook for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in lime juice.

  • Drain spaghetti and divide among 4 serving dishes. Evenly distribute sauce from the skillet and place 4 shrimp on each dish. Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.

Fairly easy to prep. The requested amount of Sirachi resulted in a fairly spicy shrimp. If you have a mixed quest list use 1/2 and put the sirachi as a side. The shrimp provided a nice sauce which we thickened a bit and mixed into the spaghetti. Definitely a keeper in our menu Read More

This was AMAZING! We loved it! Just the right amount of heat and the lime added the acidity it needed.. Perfect combo. I used 1 pound of shrimp for 2 of us. The sauce was just the right amount for 2 servings ( I only used enough cooked pasta for two of us). If I were to make this for more than two I would DEFINITELY adjust the recipe accordingly and double or even triple the sauce. No one wants dry pasta. Read More
