Jeff and I treated ourselves to this Spicy Shrimp Stir Fry for dinner the other night.
It was a nice change from our usual -- Chicken Stir Fry.
We used oriental noodles instead of rice.
I'm going to recommend you do the same -- it was really good!
For us, noodles require a bit more attention than rice because we have a rice cooker which makes the rice cooking process super simple. But the extra attention required for the noodles was worth it!
The key to stir fry is to prep your vegetables in advance.
It's all about the "orchestration" and coordination.
Once you start stir frying, everything happens quickly. You won't have time to slice, dice or chop.
So get it all staged in advance -- just like on YouTube!
Blanch the broccoli (if you're using fresh broccoli instead of frozen), slice onions, mushrooms, red pepper. Mince garlic.
Then whip up the marinade. While the shrimp are marinating, you have time to set the table.
Once you're finished with that, it's time to heat up the skillet and get things going!
