Air Fryer Shrimp with Sesame Veg Bowl

The most delicious Asian inspired rice bowl!


While I’m not a huge fan of resolutions, I am a huge fan of goals and commitments for the year ahead. One of my commitments was to create some new flavored dishes to serve my family. Having three year old twins, we can fall into noodles with cheese, chicken tenders and yogurt black hole quickly! My goal is to continue to introduce unique textures and flavors that someone will hopefully eat! Hopefully this dish inspires you try to something new!

To Make This Meal Prep-Friendly: Have your rice cooked ahead of time, and buy your shrimp already shelled, cleaned, and deveined.
