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 wheat-free soy sauce 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.

I found that when you add the shrimp frozen, or even the vegetables frozen, it gets watery an mushy. I had to turn the heat up to medium high.... it's better to thaw the shrimp first and pat it dry.. the heat definitely need to be a bit higher to get rid of the extra moisture.

Excellent! Especially with my little twist... My standard flavorings for stir fry is to mix soy sauce, a little sugar and malt vinegar. It has a slightly sweet flavor that adds depth. yummy! This is also good on a bed of quinoa!
