Delicious shrimps and vegetables

Delicious shrimps and vegetables

It’s time for prawns or shrimps again for my family. I bought a packet of king prawns and a packet of ready cooked shrimps. It was a little difficult to decide which one to cook first. Finally I went for the shrimps first. I could do a shrimp and vegetable stir fry. I had bok choy in the fridge so that would probably be a very good combination. The green colour of the vegetable and the shrimps would be beautiful.

Stir fries are always easy and quick. I love to stir fry vegetables because there’s minimal vitamins loss and everyone will eat lots of vegetables. It is not possible to eat so much vegetable as salad. Eating more vegetables is important for better health. This dish came out very delicious. We liked it very much. Here’s my recipe to share. It’s enough for 3-4 persons.

Ingredients A
600g bok choy
fried shallot oil

Wash the bok choy well. Cut into halves at the middle. Cut the lower stem into halves again, lengthwise. Heat up some shallot oil in the frying pan. Add in the bok choy and stir fry for a while until cooked. Dish it up and arrange it on a plate.

Ingredients B
300g cooked shrimps
1/2t salt
2T corn flour
4 pips of garlic (peeled and chopped)
a small piece of ginger (washed and cut into strips)
some green onion (chopped)

Frying the shrimps

Marinade the prawns with the salt and corn flour for about 30 minutes. Heat up some oil in a frying pan. Add the ginger and garlic and fry until fragrant. Then add the shrimps and green onions and continue to fry.

Saucy shrimps

Add the seasoning sauce in Ingredients C below. Stir until it boils. Pour it over the vegetables and serve hot. It goes very well with rice, noodles or pasta.

Ingredients C (seasoning sauce)
3T sugar
3/4C water
2t corn flour
4T soya sauce
1t sesame oil

Put everything in Ingredients C together in a small bowl. Mix it well before adding to the shrimps.

That looks very festive. It looks like it came out from the restaurant. I’m a big fan of shrimps and prawns and I like all cooking methods for that if they are cooked properly. :D

Sigh I go home for the holidays and I return to these DELICIOUS pictures — almost makes me want to turn around and return home to my mother. I love shrimp when it’s cooked like this, it is so tender and succulent. GAH must eat lunch now or I will start licking the computer screen -_-

Mary  on November 30th, 2009

@Joylicious - Whah…you went back for holidays! How I envy you! But…LOL….too late to return home now. Well….too painful to imagine all the food that you enjoyed :(

I love the picture of the pak choi! It looks so juicy and delicious.

Bok Choy is my favorite greens ! but I need to drive so far to the asian super market to get them.
Top with shrimp is a great idea - because, I love small shrimps! My mom would top it with Shiitake :-D to make it vegetarian

Mary  on December 1st, 2009

@Mr P - Thanks for lovely compliment. Bok choy is just such a lovely vegetable…both in look and taste. It’s one of my family favourites.

@Light Delight with Tou Tou - Me, too. I wish the Chinese shop here is just next to me house. The worst is to go there and find there’s no stock :( Great idea…I’ll top with shitake mushrooms next time.

kristy  on December 1st, 2009

Already started pratising for the coming festive celebrations huh! hehe…. Love the shrimp flavour. I’ll add more gravy…mm….mm…

Mary  on December 1st, 2009
