Wash and dry all produce. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a medium pot, bring 3 cups water and a large pinch of salt to a boil. Halve the zucchini lengthwise, then cut into ¼-inch half-moons. Thinly slice the scallions. Mince or grate the garlic. Peel and finely grate the ginger. Add the rice to the boiling water. Cover and reduce to a low simmer for 15-20 minutes, until tender.


Roast the zucchini: Toss the zucchini on a baking sheet with a large drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes, flipping halfway through, until slightly golden brown.


In a medium bowl, toss together the shrimp, hoisin, garlic, and half the ginger until thoroughly combined. Season with salt and pepper.


Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the scallions and remaining ginger. Cook, tossing, for 2-3 minutes, until soft and slightly golden. Transfer to the pot with the rice, stir to combine, and cover.


With about 4 minutes left on the rice, add the marinated shrimp to the same pan over high heat along with a large drizzle of oil. Cook, tossing, for 3-4 minutes, until shrimp are opaque and slightly charred on the outside.


Serve: Cut the lime into wedges. Serve the shrimp on a bed of scallion rice with the roasted zucchini on the side. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Serve with a lime wedge and enjoy!
