Shrimp Stir Fry

 I get a craving often for Chinese Food so the other night I decided it was time for some Shrimp Chow Mein or as others call it Stir Fry.  This is a very quick and tasty meal and can be made with many different types of meat, poultry, fish or just veggies.  I made shrimp fried rice that night too.  I'll post that recipe very soon.  Also you can add other veggies if you like, such as snow peas, cauliflower, bean sprouts or even cabbage.  I'm not a fan of cabbage in Chinese food so it's up to you what you would like.  It probably takes more time to cut the veggies than to prepare this dish.

3/4 - 1 lb shrimp (cooked,  and peeled)
2 large carrots sliced on the diagonal
3 stalks of celery cut on the diagonal
1 large onion sliced
3-4 stems of broccoli cut
  *any other veggies you want to add*
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup water
3 TBL soy sauce
2 TBL Sesame oil
1 1/2 TBL corn starch
2 TBL vegetable oil

In a large skillet heat oil, add a couple of pieces of onion and cook for about a minute or so, add the rest of the veggies, cook until tender.  Add cooked shrimp and cook for about 2 minutes, add about 1 TBL soy sauce and a couple of shakes of sesame oil.   stir.  Just before ready to serve mix chicken stock, water, rest of soy sauce, sesame oil and then add the cornstarch and stir until well mixed, add to shrimp and veggies and cook until it thickens.
Veggies all cut and ready to cook.

Shrimp added

And last the sauce mixture added.

Sure hope you try this simple recipe.  I love this the next day.  I'm not a leftover person but I can deal with this.  :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day, but Remember to Find the Time to Do ALL the Things you Love.

Wow, so colorful! It looks really good, but I would add chicken and skip the shrimp ;).
