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.
