Sesame Shrimp and Noodles


Traditional sesame shrimp are usually deep-fried; these are broiled with vegetables and tossed with pasta. Put the water on to boil before you prepare all the ingredients, then cook the shrimp and vegetables at the same time as the pasta.

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 ounces thin spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon red-wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 6 ounces medium shrimp
  • 1 small yellow bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced


  1. In a medium pot of boiling salted water, cook spaghetti until al dente, according to package instructions. Drain; return to pot.

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together marmalade, soy sauce, oil, vinegar, and ginger. Season with salt and pepper. Add shrimp, bell pepper, and scallions; toss to combine. Transfer to a rimmed (or toaster-oven) baking sheet, and spread in a single layer.

    This was delicious. I used 4oz of large shrimp and sobo noodles and the whole thing only comes to about 500 calories
