1 cup match stick carrots
1 cup purple cabbage, chopped
1/3 cup sesame seeds
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

In a small bowl combine the marinade ingredients and set aside.
In a large plastic resealable bag add the shrimp and pour the marinade over the shrimp. Seal the bag and toss the shrimp in the marinade. Place in refrigerator for 1-2 hours. Reserving the marinade, remove the shrimp and place in a bowl. Pour the marinade into a bowl and whisk in the cornstarch.
In a large skillet heat the sesame oil. Add the shrimp to the heated oil and saute approximately 2-3 minutes. Toss in the carrots and cabbage and saute for another 2-3 minutes. Finally, add the marinade to the skillet cooking 2 more minutes.
On a serving platter decorate with a layer of green leaf lettuce and pour the balsamic shrimp onto the lettuce. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and it’s ready to serve.
