Shrimp Hibachi Stack


There is nothing like the taste of fresh hibachi shrimp with all the wonderful Asian elements that go along with it! While my husband and I lived in South Carolina, not only was there several dine-in Japanese hibachi-style restaurants, but there were fast food hibachi places! This became a staple for me through college years and beyond for lunches and dinner. I crave the shrimp with the rice and vegetables, all topped with that amazing pink delight- Yum Yum Sauce!

When you take a bite of this Shrimp Hibachi Stack, you get all of those taste elements and more! It has the cool avocado and cucumber which accounts for the veggie portion, although different from the usual  zucchini and onion at the hibachi restaurants.  I will be sure to saute them together and use as the veggie base of the stack in future stack preparations; because there will be many, many  future preparations- IT’S THAT GOOD!

This is making our weekly meal rotation, for sure! Give it a try and let me know what you think!
