Shrimp Stir-Fry With Bok Choy, Mushrooms And Peppers

For this recipe you will need:

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 16 extra large shrimp (shelled and deveined)
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3 bell peppers, one each of red, yellow and green, seeded and diced
  • 6 large shitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
  • 1 small bok choy, trimmed of outer leaves and chopped
  • 1 cup sliced canned water chestnuts
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 4 scallions
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

To prepare this recipe:

Heat the canola oil in a large wok or saute pan. When the pan is hot, add the shrimp and stir-fry over high heat for 2 to 3 minutes, until they just turn pink. Remove the shrimp from the pan and set aside.

Using the same pan, add the garlic, bell peppers, mushrooms, bok choy, and water chestnuts, and stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes.

Deglaze the pan with the soy sauce and stock and continue cooking until the vegetables are tender and crisp.

Stir in the scallions, ginger, pepper flakes, cilantro, lemon juice, and cooked shrimp, and stir-fry until all the liquid has evaporated and the vegetables are lightly glazed.

Serve immediately.

This recipe will serve 4 people.
