In a separate bowl whisk together corn starch and water to form a slurry. Once the soy sauce mixture is boiling, whisk in the slurry until it becomes thick to make a teriyaki sauce. When thick remove from the heat and chill.

Add the marinated bag into the refrigerator and let stand for 20 to 30 minutes. Once marinated place all the vegetables, fruit and shrimp on a very hot grill and good for 6 to 10 minutes or until shrimp is cooked and the remaining ingredients are browned. Once cooked, remove from the grill.
- To Plate: Lay down the cooked jasmine rice onto a plate. Top off with the teriyaki marinated and cooked shrimp, veggies and fruit. Drizzle on a small amount of the reserved teriyaki sauce and garnish with green onions, cilantro and sesame seeds.
