    From the Test Kitchen

    A simple combination of soy glaze, tangy vinegar, and butter creates a sumptuous, flavorful glaze for pan-seared chicken, which we’re first coating in flour to create a delightfully crispy exterior. Verdant snap peas and tender mushrooms—sautéed with red pepper flakes and savory sesame oil—lend just a touch of heat to the finished dish.

    • 18 oz Tail-On Shrimp (Peeled & Deveined)
    • 1 cup Long Grain White Rice
    • 1 oz Salted Butter
    • 1 Tbsp Sesame Oil
    • 1 tsp Black & White Sesame Seeds
    • ¼ tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
    • ½ lb Mushrooms
    • ⅓ cup Soy Glaze
    • ¼ cup Rice Flour

    Tips from Home Chefs

    Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Roughly chop the mushrooms. Pull off and discard the tough string that runs the length of each snap pea pod. Halve the peas crosswise. In a bowl, combine the soy glaze and vinegar.

    2 Cook the rice

    Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

    3 Cook the vegetables

    Meanwhile, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat the sesame oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped mushrooms in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the halved peas and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to a bowl and cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

    4 Cook & glaze the shrimp

    Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels (remove the tails if desired); season with salt and pepper (you'll omit the flour for the shrimp). In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned shrimp in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly opaque. Add the glaze (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the shrimp are coated, opaque, and cooked through. Turn off the heat. Stir in the butter until melted and combined. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
