Ingredients

  • 1 14 ounce box Gorton's Popcorn Shrimp
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons green onions sliced

Instructions

  • Bake the popcorn shrimp according to package directions.
  • While the shrimp are in the oven, make the sauce. In a small saucepan, combine the soy sauce, ketchup, honey and sesame oil; bring to a simmer.
  • Combine the cornstarch with 1/4 cup cold water, stir until smooth. Slowly pour the cornstarch mixture into the sauce, whisking constantly. Bring the sauce to a boil. Cook for 1 minute or until just thickened.
