WW: Spicy Shrimp and Brussel Sprouts Stir Fry

Thank you Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food for this recipe…got my Everyday Food in the mail and also an email w/a link to a video 🙂  I pinned it on Pinterst and went off to the grocery to pick up some ingredients.  Got it all prepped and cooked and ba-zing!  Dinner 🙂  Quick and Healthy at that…think you don’t like brussel sprouts? Think again!

The most time consuming was shredding brussel sprouts, but you can use a food processor if you’d like – just like they say on the video and recipe.

Recipe from http://www.marthastewart.com/945719/spicy-shrimp-and-brussels-sprout-stir-fry?xsc=eml_edfsc_2012_10_23&om_rid=NsqEIZ&om_mid=_BQhpTmB8urPRKz#

Add to Shopping List

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 pound brussels sprouts, trimmed and shredded
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 small green chile, such as Thai, thinly sliced *
  • 3 scallions, white and green parts separated and thinly sliced
  • 1 pound medium shrimp (41 to 50), peeled and deveined (tails left on)
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • Lime wedges, for serving

Directions

  1. In a large skillet or wok, heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil over medium-high. In 2 batches, saute brussels sprouts until tender, 5 minutes total; season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a platter. Add bean sprouts to pan and cook until heated through, 1 minute; add to platter.
  2. Wipe out pan, add remaining tablespoon vegetable oil, and return to heat. Add garlic, chile, and scallion whites and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add shrimp, season with salt and pepper, and saute until opaque throughout, about 4 minutes. Add to platter, drizzle with sesame oil, top with scallion greens, and toss. Serve with lime wedges.

Cook’s Note

A food processor makes fast work of shredding sprouts. Or, do it by hand with a sharp knife.

* didn’t have this on hand so I used a Filipino hot sauce “Mama Sita’s Hot Pepper Sauce – Labuyo”…worked well for us 🙂

    • oh my…it was SO yum! A bit too spicy for me (I forgot how strong that hot sauce was), but hubster loved it 🙂 I should have set some aside for the girls WITHOUT hot sauce, but one of them went for it anyway… 😉
