Angel Hair with
Sesame Shrimp Sauce

READY IN 30 MINUTES

SUMMARY

This recipe can be prepped in less than 10 minutes and cooked in less than 15 minutes. The brown sugar is only 1 tablespoon (15 mL), but the molasses in the sugar really helps the sauce in this dish grab onto the pasta.  Chutney can found in the Indian section of the grocery store and you may have a few to choose from. This dish does not freeze well but tastes good cold and goes great with fresh cut up fruit.

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 oz (170 g) whole wheat angel hair pasta, uncooked
  • 1 pound (1/2 kg) asparagus tips, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) canola oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup (250 mL) sliced mushrooms
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) chutney
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) toasted sesame seeds
  • ½ cup (125 mL) chopped green onions
  • ½ cup (125 mL) white vinegar
  • 1 pound (1/2 kg) raw shrimp

DIRECTIONS

Prepare pasta according to package directions; two minutes before pasta is done, add asparagus tips.

    1. When pasta and asparagus are done, drain.
    2. Place oil, garlic and mushrooms in a 2-quart saucepan.
