Instructions

  1. Heat a large wok or frying pan with half of the oil. Add the cabbage, garlic, and ginger. Fry for a minute before adding a splash of water to speed up the cooking process. Sauté the cabbage until preferred consistency, stirring occasionally.
  2. Once the vegetables are almost done, add tamari soy sauce, lime juice, cilantro, and sesame seeds.
  3. In another pan, sauté the shrimp in the remaining coconut oil until they are no longer translucent. This will take about 6 minutes.
  4. Place the cabbage on the plates and arrange the shrimp on top. Spoon the leftover sauce from the pan over the shrimp. Garnish with some cilantro and sesame seeds.

    Used full amount of oil while cooking the cabbage (Napa) and cooked the shrimp over the grill on spits. Tasted great!

    Unfortunately this dish was ruined by the excessive amounts of lime. If I make it again I'll put 1/3 of the juice in. Otherwise it would have been great

    Thank you for sharing your feedback. I've noticed recently that the size of limes can vary greatly in stores.
