Pan Fried Shrimp
Pat dry the shrimp to remove any moisture. Mix the shrimp with the salt and set aside.
Heat a large pan with 2 - 3 tbsp of oil on medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, pan fry the shrimp. Cook each side for about 2 - 3 minutes, until there's some caramelization on each side. Cook in two batches to avoid over-crowding the pan.
Toss the cooked shrimp with the fresh lime juice in a bowl. Then keep it in the fridge until needed, OR cover the bowl with plastic wrap and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Teriyaki sauce and Teriyaki shrimp
Dissolve the cornstarch in the 2 tbsp of water and set aside.
Place all the ingredients (except for the green onions and sesame oil), in a small pot or pan and heat over medium heat. Stir to dissolve the sugar, and bring it to a boil.
Add the cornstarch slurry and stir to thicken the sauce. Remove from the heat as soon as the sauce thickens to the desired consistency. Stir in the sesame oil.
If the sauce is too thick, add a little extra water to thin it out.
To make teriyaki shrimp, place the cooked shrimp in a bowl. Pour in the teriyaki sauce and add the green onions. Toss to combine.
Mix the sriracha and mayonnaise together until well mixed. Keep refrigerated until needed.
