Combining shrimp with miso is one of my favorite pairings, and serving it with tender, stir-fried veggies, lightly scrambled eggs and crispy rice makes a beyond tasty dinner.
Technique tip: For some extra spice, sprinkle red pepper flakes on top.
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Combine the soy sauce, vinegar, miso paste and 2 tablespoons of the sesame oil in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk until the miso paste dissolves. Set aside.2.
Place the shrimp in an even layer on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with the salt and black pepper. Bake until they turn pink, about 5 minutes.3.
Combine the eggs and milk in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Heat 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil in a wok or large nonstick skillet over high. Add the egg mixture, and cook, stirring occasionally to produce large curds, until almost done, about 1 minute. Remove the eggs from the wok, and chop into 1/4-inch pieces.4.
Add the peas, bell pepper and onion to the wok, and cook, stirring often, until slightly charred, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger, and cook, stirring often, about 1 minute. Add the soy sauce mixture, bring to a boil, and cook about 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl.5.
Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon sesame oil in the wok. Add the rice, and cook on high, stirring often, until just brown and crispy, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the shrimp, egg and vegetable mixture, and stir to combine. Sprinkle with the cilantro, and serve immediately.
