Gluten Free Sweet & Spicy Shrimp
1 pound raw shrimp, peeled & deveined
3/4 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 Tbsp. GF soy sauce
1 Tsp. red pepper flakes (more or less to your liking)
2 Tsp. fresh grated ginger
Combine everything except the shrimp in a sauce pan and bring it to a boil. Let that boil for a few minutes until it reduces down a bit. In the meantime, heat a drizzle of canola oil in a large pan over medium to medium high heat. Once the pan is hot, throw the shrimp in with a little salt and pepper. Saute the shrimp until they are cooked through (they'll look opaque and hopefully slightly brown around the edges-it won't take long!) Once the glaze has reduced, pour it over the shrimp and serve over coconut rice.
Coconut rice is just rice (I prefer brown) cooked in 3 parts coconut milk (unsweetened) and 1 part water. It is slightly sweet and so delicious...definitely more exciting than plain old rice!
