DirectionsNote: Wash hands with soap and water.
Start the Rice: Because the stir fry itself comes together so quickly; you don’t want to be waiting on your side dish once your shrimp veggies are ready.
1. In a small saucepan – melt the butter, add the onion cook till soft (do not brown).
2. Add the rice and heat until quite hot – you are “toasting” the rice.
3. Add the broth and salt – it should boil quickly.
4. Set to low heat and simmer. Cover and cook for 18 minutes.
5. When your timer goes off, set aside.
Stir Fry Method:
1. While the rice is cooking, prepare your vegetables by cutting into similar sizes & shapes, so that they will cook evenly.
2. Separate the “hard” veggies from the “soft” in different bowls.
3. Peel your shrimp completely (shell tails)
4. Heat a large (12-inch) sauté pan with the 2 tbl. Canola oil. Get it nice and hot.
5. Pat the shrimp dry with a paper towel, add to hot pan & do not overcrowd the pan! Shrimp should sizzle when placed in pan.
6. Cook 2 minutes per side. Remove and set aside.
7. Wipe out excess oil and add 2 tbl. clean oil and heat pan.
8. Add a single layer of the hard veg and allow to cook. Stir every 30 seconds. * They are done when they are no longer raw, but still crisp. *
9. Remove hard veg from pan & reserve in a bowl. Add a bit more oil to pan.
10. Add your soft veg in one layer and allow to cook over high heat. * This should take no longer than 30 seconds. *
11. Remove the soft veg to the bowl.
12. Put pan back on heat and add ¼ - 1 cup of Mother-in-Law Sauce.
13. Bring to a quick simmer. Then add shrimp, scallions, and veggies back to pan and toss together well. Everything should be coated in the sauce.
14. Spoon cooked rice onto plate and cover with the Shrimp Veg Stir-Fry.
15. Top with Cilantro Leaves.
