Notes

This Asian-style dish will delight your palate! I like to combine ginger, lemon, tamari, sesame oil, sesame seeds, scallions and cilantro to turn any dish into an exotic fare. Make sure to buy wild shrimps versus farmed to avoid any toxin or GMO exposure. Shrimps are a lean source of protein, high in iodine to support your thyroid and zinc to boost your immune and reproductive system.
