6 servings (serving size: 1 cup pasta, about 3/4 cup shrimp mixture, and 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds)

"This dish has a great balance of sweet and tangy flavors. Don't be tempted to skip the brining step. It gives the shrimp a wonderful fresh taste and texture." —Donna Kelly, Provo, Utah

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine 8 cups ice water and salt in a large bowl, stirring until salt dissolves. Add shrimp; cover and refrigerate 30 minutes. Drain shrimp; discard brine. Rinse and pat dry.

Step 2

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain and keep warm.

Step 3

Combine 1/4 cup water and cornstarch in a small bowl. Add vinaigrette, stirring with a whisk until well blended.

Step 4

Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add shrimp to pan; stir-fry 2 minutes. Add butter and garlic to pan; stir-fry 1 minute. Reduce heat to low. Add cornstarch mixture to pan; bring to a boil. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in basil. Serve shrimp mixture over pasta; sprinkle with sesame seeds.

So easy to make! This is a quick go to recipe on nights that need something fast on the table after work. The kids love it and so does my husband!
