Weight Watchers Stir-Fry Garlic Shrimp

Tips and Tricks

Sauce

Ensure the sauce ingredients (soy sauce, chicken broth, sesame oil, sherry, chili paste, and vinegar) are well mixed. This helps create a uniform flavor throughout the dish.

Cornstarch Slurry

Mix the cornstarch with water thoroughly to prevent lumps. This slurry will thicken the sauce when added to the stir-fry.

Vegetable Preparation

Chop the vegetables into uniform, bite-sized pieces. This ensures they cook evenly and quickly. Choose a mix of colorful vegetables like bell peppers, snap peas, carrots, and broccoli for a vibrant dish.

Garlic and Ginger

Mince the garlic and ginger finely to ensure they distribute evenly throughout the dish, enhancing the flavor with each bite.

Cooking Shrimp

Add the shrimp after the vegetables have started to cook. Shrimp cook quickly, so adding them later prevents them from becoming overcooked and rubbery.

Stir-Frying

Stir-fry the ingredients quickly over medium/high heat. Keep everything moving in the wok to ensure even cooking and prevent burning.

Thai Chilies

Adding whole Thai chilies is optional. They add heat and a unique flavor. If you prefer a milder dish, you can reduce the number of chilies or omit them entirely.

Thickening the Sauce

Add the cornstarch slurry towards the end of cooking. Stir continuously until the sauce thickens to the desired consistency. This usually takes about a minute.

Serving

Serve the stir-fry immediately over steamed rice or noodles. Garnish with chopped green onions or sesame seeds for extra flavor and presentation.

Storage

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. Reheat gently on the stovetop or in the microwave, adding a splash of water if needed to rehydrate the sauce.

Variation

For added texture and flavor, sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds or chopped nuts like cashews or peanuts over the finished dish. You can also substitute the shrimp with chicken, beef, or tofu for variety.

Presentation

Serve the stir-fry in a large bowl or platter for a family-style meal. Add a few slices of fresh lime on the side for a zesty garnish.
