Recipe Tips

  • If you start with frozen shrimp, make sure to thoroughly defrost and drain them before using.
  • This recipe uses jumbo shrimp, not the smaller variety.
  • If you have time, let the veggie and shrimp marinate in the hibachi marinade for about 30 minutes and up to 2 hours making sure to stir everything a couple of times.
  • Use reduced salt tamari soya or soya sauce if you prefer.
  • Try and make sure the veggie pieces are all the same size so they cook at the same rate. Use a sharp knife to slice them.
  • Cook time depends on the shrimp as you don't want to overcook these. So make sure you cut your veggies to a good size so that they cook in the allocated 8-9 minutes.
  • Feel free to double or triple the recipe to serve a crowd. But you would need to cook this in more batches.
