This combination is really great! We loved it! Too spicy to put on menu or to serve our residents. Found this in BH&G Magazine, October 2007 edition.
- 1 lb fresh shrimp (medium size) or 1 lb frozen shrimp, peeled & deveined (medium size)
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (not the bottled stuff, please!)
- 4 teaspoons low sodium soy sauce (we use low-sodium Tamari)
- 1 fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped* (less if you choose)
- 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 tablespoon cooking oil
- 1 lb asparagus spear, bias-sliced into 1-inch pieces
- 1 small sweet red pepper, cut into thin bite-size strips
- 3 cups hot cooked rice
- 1⁄4 cup chopped peanuts
- chopped fresh flat leaf parsley, for garnish
- Thaw shrimp, if frozen.
- Rinse shrimp; pat dry.
- Place shrimp in medium bowl.
- For marinade, combine lime juice, soy sauce, jalapeño pepper, ginger, and garlic.
- Pour over shrimp; toss to coat.
- Marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Drain shrimp well, reserving marinade.
- Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. (Add more oil if necessary during cooking.)
- Stir-fry shrimp in hot oil for 2 to 3 minutes or until shrimp turn pink.
- Remove from wok; cover and keep warm.
- Add asparagus and pepper strips to wok; stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes or until crisp-tender.
- Add reserved marinade to wok and bring just to boiling.
- Stir in cooked rice and peanuts.
- To serve, transfer rice mixture to individual bowls, dinner plates, or for a neat idea, Chinese take-out containers.
- Spoon shrimp on top with a sprinkling of parsley.
- *Because chili peppers, such as jalapeños, contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible.
Loved this! Great taste and I agree with previous comments that it was not overly spicy... just a nice flavorful taste! Thanks for posting :) we will definitely be making this again.
This is a very VERY tasty recipe. Made it just as recipe called for (used brown rice). Hubby and kids loved it. It was not as spicy as I was thinking it might be. Smelt more "thai" when it was cooking than when we ate it...but it still disappeared quickly : )
Really really tasty and easy to make as well. Not quite as spicy as I like it so I added some Asian chili paste mmmm... It really satisfies my cravings for spicey thai food.
