Firecracker Shrimp Stirfry …and a peek inside Julia’s Kitchen
I had a ton of veggies to use up in the fridge…and a brand new wok that I got for a steal at IKEA. So stir fry it will be.
In a bowl I mixed together some hot chili sauce, a little oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar and a couple splashes of fish sauce. Oh and I pressed about 4 or 5 cloves of garlic in there too. I chopped a ton of veggies…squash, zucchini, onion, red pepper and more garlic. Forget the grill…this stir fry was awesome!
Firecracker Shrimp Stirfry
Yield: 2- 4 servings
- 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 2 TB hot chili sauce (I use Sriracha - adjust amount to your taste)
- 1 TB soy sauce
- 1 TB rice vinegar
- 1 TB oil
- couple of splashes fish sauce
- 4-5 garlic cloves, pressed or minced
- small pinch of salt, big pinch of pepper
- 1-2 zucchinis, chopped in quarters
- 1-2 yellow squash, chopped in quarters
- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 1 red pepper, sliced in thin strips
- 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
- Combine chili sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, oil, fish sauce, garlic, salt and pepper in a bowl to make a sauce. Toss shrimp in sauce and coat completely.
- Heat wok over medium-high heat. Add a couple tsp canola oil into wok and sear the shrimp. Once shrimp are just cooked, take out and set aside. Add chopped vegetables and garlic into wok. Cook over medium-high heat for about 5-8 minutes until veggies start to soften. Once veggies are slightly cooked, add back in shrimp and toss to combine, cook for 2-3 minutes more. Serve with cooked soba noodles. Season with more soy sauce, fish sauce or chili sauce to taste.
While I was in D.C. last weekend I visited the Julia Child exhibit at the Smithsonian Museum of American History. Now, I’m almost embarrassed to admit this, but I really don’t know much about Ms. Julia Child. I know of her…but have never watched her shows. With “Julie & Julia” out in the theaters today, the book and then finally after visiting this exhibit, I must say, I am intrigued. I may have to dig up some old shows of hers and settle in on the couch one afternoon and just watch…she seemed like such a lovely spirit. Enjoy a peek in her kitchen…apparently it’s all her stuff, donated by her and set up exactly how she wanted it.
