Ingredients

32 shrimp, medium-large 320 g
500 g frozen vegetable mix
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 onions, finely chopped 200 g
2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 3/4 lemon
1 dried chili peppers, minced 0.4 g
1/4 cup canola oil 65 mL
2 tbsp soy sauce, low-sodium 30 mL
1 tbsp gingerroot, grated 14 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

You will need a wok or frying pan.

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

Sauté the shrimp:

Heat half of the canola oil in a pan over medium heat and gently cook the garlic and onion 3 min, until translucent, taking care not let them burn. Add the shrimp, still frozen, and cook until they turn opaque, about 3 min. Add the lemon juice and chili pepper, then season with salt and pepper to taste.

Sauté the vegetables:

Heat the rest of the oil in a frying pan or wok. Stir-fry the frozen vegetables 4-5 min, until translucent but still crunchy. Add the soy sauce and grated ginger.

Combine:

Transfer the cooked shrimp into the wok. Cook all together 1-2 min over medium heat while stirring. Serve on the warmed plates.

The lemon juice was a nice change from the sesame oil I usually use with a stir fry.

Surprisingly light and very filling. I used fresh vegetables and added some tofu as well.

I was surprised at how this dish had a lot of flavours. I used fresh vegetables as someone had suggested in a review. I cooked all the vegetables at the beginning since they took longer to cook from fresh. My husband is picky and he ate it all.

Very good recipe, we eat this often! I use bottled lemon juice and instead of dicing a whole onion, we slice half an onion in strips. The only recommendation I have is replacing frozen veg with fresh. If you watch the produce stands and only choose veg on sale, it's actually cheaper to use fresh and it tastes way better. Frozen veggies always end up soggy, and there is nothing worse than soggy stir fry!
