  1. 1

    Cook the Rice

    Bring a small pot with rice and 11/2 cups water to a boil over medium-high heat.

    Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and cut white portions of green onions into 1" lengths. Thinly slice green portions.

    Slice Fresno chile into thin rounds. Discard seeds if you prefer less spice. Be sure to wash hands and cutting board after prepping.

    Drain mandarin oranges and reserve juice.

    Pat shrimp dry.

  3. 3

    Sear the Shrimp

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add shrimp to hot pan and cook until browned, 1-2 minutes per side.

    Transfer shrimp to a plate. Shrimp will finish cooking in a later step.

    Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to sear shrimp to medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add white portions of green onions and water chestnuts. Stir often until lightly browned, 1-2 minutes.

    Add Fresno chile (to taste) and cook until fragrant, 30-60 seconds.

    Add reserved mandarin orange juice, teriyaki glaze, and Sriracha. (Add one Sriracha packet for “one pepper” spice, two for two, etc.) Bring to a boil. Return shrimp to pan and cook until shrimp reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 1-2 minutes per side.

  5. 5
