Teriyaki Shrimp Dip
This Teriyaki Shrimp Dip appetizer comes together in under 10 minutes but certainly doesn’t taste like it thanks to P.F. Chang’s® Home Menu Teriyaki Sauce. Just sauté some succulent shrimp and toss them with this slightly sweet and luxuriously thick sauce for a fabulous meal. Or serve them over a super simple cream cheese dip with some fried won tons and you’ve got yourself a fantastic snack to serve at your next party.
When I was given the opportunity to try out P.F. Chang’s® new sauces, I chose to use the Teriyaki sauce which is a perfect blend of Soy Sauce, pineapple juice concentrate and sake wine. It’s the sweetest of their new sauces and you know how much I love sweet, even in a savory dish.
You can now find their new Teriyaki sauce along with Sesame Sauce and Kung Pao Sauce in the Asian food aisle at Walmart. The flavor of the Teriyaki sauce is fresh and delicate and it has a wonderful balance of sweet and savory.
Teriyaki sauce goes great on chicken and beef, but I like it best on shrimp.
A quick sauté is all it took to cook my shrimp to perfection before I tossed on the sauce which caramelized and coated the shrimp quickly. Shrimp can over cook if left on the stove too long and being they cook super fast it’s great to have a sauce that will stick to the shrimp immediately.
To make perfectly cooked shrimp, heat the oil over high heat until it beings to smoke. Pour the shrimp into the pan and cook until the first side caramelizes and turns golden brown, about a minute. Then remove the skillet from the heat, and turn over each of the shrimp. Return to the heat and cook for about 30 seconds. Toss on the Teriyaki sauce and stir, then reduce the heat to low and continue stirring for about a minute until evenly coated and the shrimp is cooked through.
You can serve the shrimp as is or toss on some sesame seeds and use it to top a creamy dip.
To create the base for my dip I used ingredients that are usually found in crab rangoon. I knew the flavor profile would be a good match for the Teriyaki shrimp and that the dip would taste great with fried won ton chips.
To make the crispy won tons, simply cut the won ton wrappers in half diagonally and fry them in vegetable oil that’s heated to 350 degrees F.
As soon as they come out of the hot oil, lightly sprinkle them with some salt and you’ve got the perfect chips to serve with this dip. I liked the dip served cold, but I know it would taste great hot too.
