Shrimp Stir Fry

A fast stir-fry that can be adapted in many ways. Use what veggies you have on hand and you have an endless adaptation.
Prep time: 15 MinCook time: 15 MinTotal time: 30 Min


  • 1/2- 1lb shrimp, cleaned and deveined
  • 3 cups napa cabbage, sliced thin
  • 1/2 onion, cut into small chunks
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced thin
  • 2 small carrots, julienned
  • Soy Sauce
  • Asian 5 spice
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • Toasted Sesame Seeds (for garnish)
  • 2 green onions, sliced thin diagonally
  • Sesame oil


  1. Clean and prep your shrimp and the rest of the ingredients so they are ready to add when you cook.
  2. Mix the cornstarch and 5 spice together and add to your cleaned shrimp, tossing to coat.  Allow to sit for about 5 minutes.
  3. Heat your wok to high heat, till it begins to smoke.  Pour a tiny drizzle of the oil around the outside edge and let it sink to the bottom - add the shrimp and allow to cook until a crust is formed - then begin stirring till shrimp are cooked through.
  4. Remove the shrimp to a small plate, add the onions, carrots, and celery, cooking long enough to soften - 4-5 minutes.
  5. Add your rice, and cabbage and cook about 3-4 minutes - return the shrimp to your wok.  Drizzle some soy sauce around the edges and stir in - taste and adjust your seasonings.
  6. Serve and sprinkle some sesame seeds and green onions over the top and dig in.

Stir Fries are a fantastic way to get fed fast!  We used the napa cabbage that we grew in the garden and harvested before our first 20 degree weather.     We try to have seafood on Sundays or Mondays, as trash pickup is on Tuesdays - and well, you know - shrimp stinks!
