Spicy Shrimp and Bok Choy Stir Fry (South Beach Diet Phase 1)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Lizzie Rodriquez

From new book. Haven't tried. Chili-garlic sauce is a common Asian ingredient that brings a tangy hot flavor to any dish. It can be used both for cooking and as a condiment when you want a little extra heat. Look for brands with no sugar added in the Asian section of the supermarket.

Very good and healthy, nice zip to the sauce. We were given 14 oz. of bok choy, and supplemented with at least 4 cups of frozen California mix frozen veggies, thawed. For 3 people (2 men) we had 2 lbs of 36-40 count shrimp and doubled the scallions, garlic, soy sauce and Thai chile-garlic sauce; the green part of the scallions did not need to be doubled. We served over brown rice. Yes, I will make again, it's so easy!

  1. In a large bowl, combine the shrimp, scallion whites, and garlic.
  2. In a wok or large non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add shrimp mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp turns pink and are cooked through, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.
  3. Return the pan to medium heat. Add bok-choy, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally until crisp tender, about 3-4 minutes. Drain any liquid from the skillet and add bok choy to bowl with shrimp.
  4. Return the pan to medium. Add soy sauce and chili garlic sauce; stir to combine and bring to a boil. Add shrimp mixture and toss until coated. Cook briefly just to reheat. Still in scallion greens.
