Spring Vegetable and Shrimp Stir Fry

The original plan was to go out for dinner last night but Jen and Randy both had to work yesterday so weren't able to get here until 7:30. Instead I deciede to throw together a Spring Vegetable and Shrimp Stir Fry and make some Vegetable Egg Rolls, using this recipe and just deleting the shrimp.  I had everything prepped and ready to go as they walked in the door.  Dinner was served within 15 minutes.

Spring Vegetable and Shrimp Stir Fry

2 lbs large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 c. low sodium soy sauce
2 t. sugar
1 clove garlic, minced
1 t. ginger paste
1 bunch asparagus, woody ends snapped off, cut in half crosswise
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
7 scallions, white and light green parts sliced
1 T. peanut oil
1 T. cornstarch

Combine soy sauce, sugar, garlic and ginger in large bowl.  Add shrimp and toss to coat.  Let stand in marinade, refrigerated for 30 minutes.

Heat oil in the bottom of a wok.  Add the asparagus and scallions to the wok, reserving some scallion for garnish.  Stir fry for a moment before adding the shrimp reserving the marinade.  Continue to stir and fry until shrimp turns pink.  Add the tomatoes and stir and cook briefly.  Whisk the cornstarch into the reserved marinade and pour into wok, cooking and stirring until sauce thickens and contents are coated.  Print Recipe


  1. That looks so yummy!! We had stir fry the other week which I wasn't super impressed with, so I want to try again and this one looks like a keeper.
