Stir-Fried Shrimp with Spicy Orange Sauce


I present to you another great meal from Cooking Light. This dish brings 2 things together I love.....seafood and stir fry. This dish was easy to make and it cooks up very quickly. I decided to serve it with Lo Mein Noodles (found in Asian section of grocery store). It has a slightly sweet, slightly spicy flavor. Was it good? Let's just say we all went for second helpings. I will definitely save this recipe for my "keeper" list.

I did make one change to the recipe. It calls for Chile Paste with garlic and I couldn't find that ingredient in my grocery store so I used 1/2 tsp of Sriracha Sauce instead. This is a hot and spicy-sweet sauce found in the Asian section of your store. I may add a little more next time for more spice or you could also use a large pinch of red pepper flakes.

Look at that beautiful shrimp!



What a healthy meal: seafood, vegetables & fruit

Enjoy!


Mom's Cooking Club Lesson: I normally buy my shrimp with the shells on and just peel and devein them at home. But sometimes, when I want a quick dinner or I don't want to take the extra time to peel them, I have my husband (he works near our seafood market) buy them already peeled and deveined. This cost only about fifty cents more per pound. Minimal cost for the convenience. So, for a quicker and more convenient dinner, buy your shrimp already peeled and deveined.

Yet another delicious recipe!

Why don't you try next making your own preserves! It's a fun passtime and having the preserve available for your yogurt or morning toast in winter will remind you of the happy and fun time you had in summer doing them!

This is a dish made for me! Love shrimp and love these flavors. Sadly I cannot get fresh, uncooked shrimp here at all! I loved buying shrimp at Publix in Florida last summer with mom, pre-peeled! It was plump and gorgeous. I must make this dish when next in Florida!

I am glad to hear that your Bostons "snork" up and eat everything in sight. It reassures. Little piggy-dogs.
