Cover and refrigerate the rest of the marinade for next step. (while the shrimp is marinating, we steamed broccoli and microwaved some quick brown rice.) Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Place shrimp in the skillet. (Discard used marinade) Cook shrimp on one side until pink – about 45 seconds – then flip shrimp over. Pour in remaining marinade and cook it all until shrimp is cooked through, about 1 minute more. Serve shrimp with cooked marinade sauce and a garnish of green onion. The sauce is excellent on brown rice and steamed veggies on the side. Recipe Notes. Using leftover marinade is a debated topic. While you could boil it to rid any contamination, the flavor could possibly change. But do what you’d like. Usually we just make a little extra (like we do here) to use as the sauce.
