Spicy Cashew Shrimp Stir-Fry

Shrimp Stir Fry

 

This is a fantastic recipe and a great way to use your garden fresh snap or snow peas!  My garden snap and snow peas are doing awesome this year.  I am quite simply amazed at the height they have grown to … about 4 – 5 feet  tall! Even if you don’t have a garden, go ahead and try this stir fry.  Enjoy!

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • Shrimp
  • 4 Tablespoons soy sauce, divided
  • black pepper
  • 2/3 cup fat-free, reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Thai chili garlic sauce
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons sesame oil, divided
  • 2 large carrots, sliced thinly on the bias
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 1/2 cups snap peas (or snow peas)
  • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup sliced water chestnuts
  • 1/2 cup chopped canned baby corn
  • 1/2 cup bamboo shoots
  • 3/4 cup cashews
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain white rice, cooked according to package directions

Instructions

  • Toss together shrimp, 1 Tablespoon soy sauce, plus a couple grinds of black pepper in a bowl then set aside. In a separate bowl, combine remaining soy sauce, broth, brown sugar, Thai chili garlic sauce, and garlic. Microwave for 20 seconds in the microwave, then stir and set aside.
  • Heat 1 Tablespoon oil in a lark wok or skillet over high heat. Add shrimp and cook until no longer pink on the outside, about 2-3 minutes. Add carrot, broccoli, snow peas, onion, bamboo shoots and remaining oil if needed, then stir fry for 5-6 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Add water chestnuts and baby corn, then stir to combine.
  • Add the sauce and cashews to the wok, then let sauce bubble for 2 minutes. Serve over cooked white rice.
