Today’s Menu: Shrimp and Asparagus Stir-Fry

 

 

Shrimp and Asparagus Stir Fry 006
Beautiful weather returned today, sunny and 70 degrees! Took some items over to a local Goodwill Store, then dropped off some canned goods to Reach Out Lakota (Free Food Pantry), then to Walmart and Kroger. Picked up a few items for dinner tonight. So tonight I prepared Shrimp and Asparagus Stir-Fry.

 

 

 

 

I hadn’t had any Stir-Fry in a while and it was sounding good! To prepare it I needed; 1 cup Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain Brown Rice (cooked according to package instructions), 2 tablespoons Reduced-Sodium Soy Sauce, 1 tablespoon Seasoned Rice Vinegar, 1 tablespoon peeled and grated fresh Ginger, 1 tablespoon Sesame Seeds, 2 tablespoons Canola Oil, 1 pound Asparagus (trimmed and cut diagonally into 2-inch pieces), 1 small can of Sliced Water Chestnuts, 1/2 package of Mini Carrots, 1 pound Jumbo Shrimp (cleaned and cooked), and 1 teaspoon Asian (toasted) Sesame Oil. Sounding good isn’t it!

 

 

 

Shrimp and Asparagus Stir Fry 001
In a small bowl, stir together the Soy Sauce, Rice Vinegar and Ginger. Set aside. In a 12-inch skillet or Wok over medium-high heat, toast the Sesame Seeds until golden, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl. In the same skillet, heat the Canola Oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add the Asparagus, Water Chestnuts, and Carrots, cook until tender-crisp stirring frequently, about 5 minutes. Stir the Soy Sauce mixture and Shrimp into the Asparagus mixture. Cook 1 minute to heat through. Remove the skillet from the heat, and stir in the Sesame Oil. I then microwaved the Uncle Ben’s Rice (according to the package directions). Removed from the microwave and made a bed of it on a plate. To serve, topped the Rice with the Shrimp and Asparagus mix. As I said I hadn’t had Stir-Fry in a while but it was worth the wait, delicious! Shrimp with anything is good, but add all these other ingredients and it’s amazing! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse Temptations.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
