WHAT IS HIBACHI SHRIMP
Hibachi, or fire bowl, is a Japanese style of cooking that cooks meat, vegetables and seafood over a high heat metal cooking plate. This cooking process has become popularized in most Japanese restaurants.
This shrimp hibachi is seared over high heat in sesame oil and coated in a hibachi sauce made from oyster sauce, teriyaki sauce and low sodium soy sauce. Seasoned with black pepper, garlic, and ginger this meal comes together quickly.
WHY SHRIMP HIBACHI FOR MEAL PREP
If you’re not familiar with meal prep, it’s essentially prepping your daily meals in advance. It takes the guess work out of the dreaded question “What’s for dinner?” or any other meal of the day. When it comes to prepping my meals and cooking large quantities of food in one session, I always opt to cook one meal that will go really quickly and I can move on to the next dish. Shrimp is always an easy go-to for quick cooking meals that can be made in a variety of ways.

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE NEEDED
When cooking, I try to keep my ingredients list as simple as possible. This helps so that everything is easily accessible at regular grocery store and it gives you freedom to add your own personal flair.
Here are the main ingredients needed for this popular recipe:
- Raw Shrimp
- Hibachi vegetables – I took a shortcut and used a bag of pre-sliced mixed vegetables while not traditional hibachi style, it does cut down on prep work
- White rice – I prefer jasmine rice
HOW TO MAKE HIBACHI SHRIMP RECIPE
To make this recipe at home you will need a large skillet that can fit both the shrimp and the veggies. To start, heat your skillet to medium high heat and add 1 tbsp of sesame oil. While the oil is heating, peel and devein your shrimp in a small bowl season the shrimp with black pepper, garlic powder and kosher salt and set aside.
Once the skillet is heated, pan fry your shrimp for about 2 – 3 minutes on each side. Spread the shrimp in a single layer so as not to crowd the pan. If you need to do this in batches you can. Once all of the shrimp is cooked, return the cooked shrimp to the pan and pour in your sauce. Stir the shrimp in the sauce ensuring to coat well.
Lastly, add your vegetables and stir fry for 3 – 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender crisp.
HOW TO TOP SHRIMP DINNER
There are a few toppings you can choose to use for a bit of added flair. My personal preference is to top with some sesame seeds and bit of gochugara flakes (red pepper flakes). However you can also use green onion, parsley, or grated ginger. You can choose to brighten up this dis by adding some citrus. Opt for either a squeeze of lemon or lime. If dipping is more your thing, this dish is perfect to serve with some creamy yum yum sauce.
HOW TO SERVE HIBACHI SHRIMP MEAL PREP

- Noodles – Serve alongside some hibachi noodles
However you choose to pair it, it will quickly become your family’s favorite hibachi dinner.
