Sesame-Orange Shrimp

First off, can we all agree that my three older sisters need to stop being lazy and start posting new recipes?
We can? Ok, good. Let's move onto a new recipe I tried then.

I've been on a health kick lately and have been looking for lighter meals. This one came across my attention on the Eating Well website.

3 Tbsp. Sesame Seeds
2 Large Egg Whites
1/4 Cup Cornstarch
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 pound peeled and deveined shrimp (21-25 per pound)
2 Tbsps. Canola oil (divided)
3/4 Cup Orange Juice
1/4 Cup dry sherry
2 Tbsps. Reduced sodium Soy Sauce
1 Teaspoon Sugar

1. Whisk sesame seeds, egg whites, cornstarch, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add shrimp and coat.
2. Heat Tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add half the shrimp and cook until golden. (1-2 minutes per side). Transfer shrimp to paper towel-lined plate to drain. Repeat with other half of the shrimp and another tablespoon of oil.
3. Add orange juice, sherry, soy sauce, and sugar to the pan. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally until slightly thick.

4. Return the shrimp to the pan and stir to coat with the sauce. Serve immediately.

Serve over rice or on its own. Very good with raspberries and blackberries!
