Shrimp should be thoroughly dried in order to get a beautiful sear.
It's VERY IMPORTANT that the shrimp are not overcooked; therefore, sear the shrimp for 2 minutes per side as they will continue to heat through once they are added to the hot teriyaki sauce.
Lightly dredge the shrimp in all-purpose flour before searing as this will help in thickening the sauce.
Use large or jumbo shrimp instead of the smaller sized shrimp (large plump shrimp are best).
