What’s better than to come home from work and get dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes? You can do this with a simple yet delicious ramen stir fry! I’ve told you I always have frozen shrimp in my freezer, so I used this as my protein since it’s easy to defrost and prepare. You can swap the shrimp out for any protein you’d like or just more veggies! Paired with my favorite color chopsticks 🙂 this meal is gorgeous and delicious.
Ingredients (makes for 2)
Shrimp, 5 per person
1 red bell peppers, sliced
1/2 medium yellow onion, sliced
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tbs coconut oil
1 tbs avocado oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tsp agave nectar or honey
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 – 1 tbs sirracha sauce (depending on your spice level)
1/2 package of ramen noodle (can be found in the Asian aisle of your local supermarket)
1/4 cooking water reserved
Salt and pepper
1 scallion, sliced for garnish
In a large sauté pan, sauté the onions, peppers and garlic in both oils. Season with salt and pepper. Add the shrimp, season with more pepper and the chili powder and cook through.
Meanwhile, boil the water and cook the ramen according to the package. Reserve the 1/4 cup of cooking water before straining.
When the shrimp are just about done, add the agave nectar, soy sauce, sirracha, cooking water and the ramen. Stir to combine. Top with sliced scallions. Enjoy!
