Schezuan Shrimp

My friend’s husband Darrin had made this several times. Everytime he does, I always hear about how delicious it is from Megan. After having the recipe sitting in my inbox for months, I finally got around to making it. I’m glad I did. It’s easy to make, healthy and has the perfect kick of spicy.

Ingredients:

  • 8 Tbsp water
  • 4 Tbsp ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 tsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/5 tsp ground ginger
  • 1Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 12 ounces cooked shrimp, tails removed
  • 1 large bag frozen stir-fry vegetables

Directions:

  1. In a bowl, stir together water, ketchup, soy sauce, cornstarch, honey, crushed red pepper, and ground ginger. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in green onions and garlic; cook 30 seconds.
  3. Stir in shrimp, and toss to coat with oil.
  4. Stir in sauce.
  5. Stir in bag of frozen vegetables.
  6. Cook and stir until sauce is bubbly and thickened.

I served this atop some cooked quinoa. Thanks Darrin and Megan for the great recipe!
