That's definitely not how the theme song goes, but it's what you'll get when you order this: crispy shrimp with the delightful, slightly sweet, slightly nutty seeds, fresh snow peas, and a garlic sesame and Sriracha sauce that's good for birds that are big, or invisible best friends. Sunny days when you order this meal, friends.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 16 oz. shrimp, follow same instructions as 8 oz. shrimp, working in batches if necessary.

  • If using scallops, follow same instructions as shrimp in Steps 2, 3, and 4, cooking until scallops reach minimum internal temperature, 1-2 minutes per side. Scallops will vary in amount as they are portioned by weight. Don't worry, the sweet flavor and tender texture will be the same.

  • If using diced chicken breasts, follow same instructions as shrimp in Steps 2, 3, and 4, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  1. 1

    Cook the Rice

    Bring a small pot with rice, a pinch of salt, and 11/2 cups water to a boil.

    Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes.

    Remove from burner and set aside.

    While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Sauce

    Trim ends off snow peas and cut into 1" pieces.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.

    Mince garlic.

    In a mixing bowl, combine garlic sesame sauce and Sriracha (to taste). Set aside.

    Pat shrimp dry.

  3. 3

    Coat the Shrimp

    In another mixing bowl, add tempura mix, 1/4 cup water, and sesame seeds. Stir until a thin batter forms, like pancake batter.

    Add shrimp to bowl with batter and gently stir to coat.

    Place panko on a plate. Transfer shrimp to plate with panko and flip until coated, pressing gently to adhere.

  4. 4

    Cook the Shrimp

    Line a plate with a paper towel.

    Heat 3 Tbsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over high heat. Let oil heat, 5 minutes.

    After 5 minutes, test oil temperature by adding a pinch of batter to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, let oil cool. If it doesn't brown, increase heat.

    Carefully place shrimp in hot oil and cook until shrimp are golden brown and reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-4 minutes per side.

    Remove shrimp to towel-lined plate.

  5. 5

    Cook Stir-Fry and Finish Dish

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat with 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add snow peas, garlic, and white portions of green onions to hot pan. Stir occasionally until vegetables are tender, 3-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping rice with stir-fry, shrimp, green portions of green onions, and sauce. Bon appétit!
