  1. Preheat the broiler. In a medium pan, toss the shrimp with 1 teaspoon each of the oil and the honey. Add the cayenne.
  2. Broil shrimp for 2 minutes per side.
  3. Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium heat and add the remaining teaspoon of sesame oil. Pour in the eggs. Cook for about 2 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and cut into strips.
