I am slowly but surely getting back into the cooking swing of things. Thank the Lord for awesome friends delivering us meals all summer and being able to order take out all fall, but I've been finally ready to get back to cooking myself. We are still loving our Hello Fresh deliveries and a few weeks ago, we had this amazing steak stir fry. It was so good that I was craving it again so I decided to go ahead and attempt to recreate it, just adapting the ingredients to what I had in my kitchen. Well wouldn't you know, this recipe actually turned out even better! It was full of flavor and best of all, it took me under 30 minutes for everything: preparation, cooking, and serving. I used frozen shrimp that I had from Costco - most reasonably priced place to get shrimp - and just threw a half bag of it in the fridge the night before to thaw.
1 pound thawed, cooked shrimp
Jasmine rice (Trader Joe's makes a really good frozen one!)
8 oz brussels sprouts
1 thumb ginger
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Salt & pepper
Prep: Trim and quarter brussels sprouts lengthwise. Peel and cut carrots into thin slices. Thinly slice scallions, keeping whites and greens separate. Slice jalapeno (remove seeds if you prefer less heat, which is what we did). Peel and mince ginger. Halve lemon.
Start the rice on the stovetop or microwave. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-heat. Add brussels sprouts, carrots and jalapeno to pan. Toss until veggies are barely tender, 5-6 minutes.
Add scallion whites and ginger. Toss until veggies are softened, 3-5 minutes. Add soy sauce, shrimp and a squeeze of lemon. Toss until shrimp are white, 2-3 minutes.
Fluff rice and serve stir fry over it - top with scallion greens. Enjoy!
