At the time - I had no idea what I wanted to do with this blog - or how I wanted it to be. And now I feel like I have a more clear picture of how I want to share food with you.
'Cause I like you.
This has long been one of my favorite early/pre-blog days recipes - and I've thought of it often.
In a zippie bag, combine the ground ginger,
The cayenne pepper,
and the shrimp. Close the baggie and squoosh the shrimp around with the spices and seeds to coat the shrimp as best you can.
Then put in the fridge and leave to marinate for about 20 minutes.
Have a glass of wine while you wait. Or do some dishes. Whatever floats your boat.
(I drank wine).
In a wok, or frying pan, heat the sesame oil then add the red pepper.
Then add the green onions.
Cook for a few minutes to soften, then add the teriyaki sauce.
Add in the shrimp and green peas and cook for about 4 minutes or until the shrimp are opaque.
While the shrimp is cooking, add the cornstarch to the chicken broth. Stir to combine.
Add the chicken broth mixture to the wok and cook until the liquid boils and is thickened. Stir in the salt and serve on rice.
I LOVE this stirfry. It's fast, flavorful, and light. It's perfect for summer or even in the winter to make it feel like summer.
I would love at this point to suggest small changes you could make to suit it to your liking - but I can't imagine anything actually needs to be changed! You could have it on noodles if you want. I think those super-skinny little egg noodles would be pretty good with this!
But it's totally up to you. I like rice.
Anyway - get into the kitchen and enjoy!
Have a fantastic weekend! -Heather
