Those 2 pound raw, frozen shrimp bags from Costco come in clutch every month my husband and I go on our Costco grocery hauls. The shrimp come already deveined with tail removed. It's so easy to cook with. We buy 2 or 3 bags a month. There's a lot you can do with shrimp and I thought about an easy stir fry recipe that you can whip up in no time. It only requires a few ingredients. This recipe is made with store bought teriyaki sauce, so you just pour it in along with the shrimp and veggies. Voila! It's all done!
Shrimp, Sugar Snap Peas and Carrots Stir Fry
2 lbs raw, deveined shrimp
2 large carrots, sliced into chips
Half yellow onion, sliced
12 oz bag sugar snap peas
2 garlic cloves, minced
⅓ cup frozen peas, optional
½ cup Teriyaki sauce, I used Soyaki from Trader Joes
2 tbsp chili garlic sauce
1 tbsp sriracha
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp water
Salt and pepper to season
Place the shrimp on a small baking sheet or plate. Pat dry shrimp, drizzle with olive oil and season lightly with salt and fresh cracked pepper.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk to combine the teriyaki sauce, chili garlic sauce and sriracha. In another small bowl, whisk the cornstarch and water (this is a slurry, it will tighten the sauce) Set aside.
In a large wide skillet, heat to medium high. Sear the shrimp for a minute on each side. Do this in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan. Remove and place in a bowl. Repeat.
Drizzle in olive oil and add the vegetables, saute for 5-7 minutes. Once they are partially cooked, add the shrimp back into the skillet. Pour the teriyaki sauce and slurry.
Toss the shrimp and vegetables within the sauce. Lower the heat to medium low and simmer for 3-5 minutes.
Serve with rice or noodles. Garnish with sriracha and green onions.
