Similar in texture and flavor to peanuts, soy nuts add a nutty crunch to this Chinese classic. If you can't find soy nuts, substitute lightly salted or unsalted dry-roasted peanuts. Serve with rice and steamed broccoli.
Prep: 2 minutes; Cook: 7 minutes
1 1/2 pounds peeled and deveined large shrimp
3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/2 cup light sesame-ginger dressing (such as Newman's Own)
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; coat with cooking spray. Coat shrimp with cooking spray; add shrimp and red pepper to pan. Stir-fry 2 minutes. Add dressing and onions. Cook 3 minutes or until shrimp are done, stirring constantly. Sprinkle evenly with soy nuts; serve immediately.
Well it's a 4.5 star everyday dinner. Simple, quick - if you have peeled shrimp and Trader Joes brown rice the whole thing can be ready in about 10 minutes! I've added celery and mushrooms and red pepper, whatever I have laying around.
I guess I can't really judge this recipe as written as I have used an orange ginger sauce and a general tsao's sauce - but not the sesame ginger (because we don't love the sesame flavor).
But we still love this meal. - More like a guide than a recipe.
This was an easy to prepare and a very good recipe...I also used more red pepper flakes...we like hot food...The Newman's sesame ginger sauce was great...how easy do you want it ...I served with rice and broccoli does not have to be a non stick pan....
For a weeknight meal, this was great! I think my husband added more red pepper than it called for (we like things spicy!) & the leftovers the next day were even better. We ate it over rice but would be excellent on an Asian salad too!
