Easy Gochujang Shrimp


My schedule is pretty full these days, so I'm all about preparing healthy and delicious meals in a short time. The other night I created Easy Gochujang Shrimp. I quickly sauteed shrimp and then tossed it in a sauce made up of Gochujang, fish sauce, soy, rice wine vinegar, and a splash of sesame oil. The shrimp were perfect and dressed in the most amazing flavors.

2 pounds Jumbo Shrimp (21-25 count)
