Stir-Fry Shrimp with Soba Noodles

Today’s Menu: Stir-Fry Shrimp with Soba Noodles

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I spent most of the day on the phone talking to Meda Care, Social Workers, and Assisted Living Centers. It looks as though we are going to have to move Dad to an Assisted Living Center. We tried doing all we could for Dad but I guess sometimes that’s not enough. Sad Day. For Dinner tonight I prepared Stir-Fry Shrimp with Soba Noodles.

 

 

 

Fixing a dish I haven’t had in a while, Stir-Fry Shrimp with Soba Noodles. To make this dish I’ll be using; a package of KAME Soba Stir-Fry Noodles, a bag of Meijer Frozen Large Raw Shrimp, a can of Reese Sliced Water Chestnuts, La Choy Beans Sprouts, a small can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans, a can of Kroger Whole Carrots, 1 tsp minced Garlic, 1 tsp sugar (Splenda Sugar), McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce, and La Choy Rice Noodles (for topping and optional).

 

 

To prepare it, I started by preparing the Baby Carrots. I boiled them in a small sauce pan, boiling them until they were not quite fork tender. I parboiled them because Carrots take a bit to cook and by boiling them first they will get done in the wok with the other ingredients. As the Carrots were boiling I also prepared the Shrimp. In a bowl mix the shrimp with 1 tsp Splenda Sugar and a dash of McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley . Marinate for 15 minutes. Next cooked them in a bit of butter just until pink. Remove Shrimp from the skillet and set aside along with Baby Carrots.

 

 

In a separate skillet I prepared the Soba Noodles. Using a medium size skillet, I added 1/2 Tbsp. of Extra Light Olive Olive Oil and heated on medium high. I added the Noodles and the Soy Sauce, stirred and cooked for 2 minutes. Removed from the heat and set aside.

 

 

 

 

 

Using the same skillet as the Shrimp was cooked I added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil (cooking on medium high) along with the Butter, Baby Carrots, Cut Green Beans, Water Chestnuts and 1 tsp minced Garlic. Then seasoned them with the Sea Salt and the Peppercorn Medley. Cooked it 2 minutes and then added 2 tablespoons of water and the cooked Carrots, Shrimp, and Noodles. Continued to cook everything for an additional 1 minute, stirring it often. Then I added the skillet of Soba Noodles on top of everything, stirring till mixed. Remove from heat and serve! Love this dish, everything spot on! The Noodles, Shrimp, Vegetables, along with the seasoning and Soy Sauce combine to make one delicious dish. Really love the KA*ME Udon Stir Fry Noodles, they taste so fresh! One of the best Stir-Frys I ever made, leftovers for Dinner tomorrow! For Dessert/Snack tonight a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.
