Shrimp Stir Fry with Broccoli and Zucchini

A quick meal, all in one pan, except the rice!


1 pound cleaned and deveined shrimp
1 sweet green pepper; cut in 3/4-inch squares
2 teaspoons fresh minced garlic
pinch or more of cayenne pepper
1 small carrot; thinly sliced 
2 cups of broccoli florets (microwave with 1 teaspoon of sugar and covered with water for 5 minutes drain)
1 zucchini cut into chunks
1 yellow squash cut into chunks
1/2 cup pineapple chunks and 1 cup liquid
1/4 cup dry sherry
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
2 tablespoon olive oil or sesame oil


In a large wok style fry pan, add oil and all the vegetable, saute with garlic for 3 to 5 minutes we like the vegetables crisp, cook longer if you prefer. Add pineapple and sherry to pan. In a small bowl mix the pineapple juice, cornstarch and teriyaki sauce together. Add and cook till thickened.  Serve with jasmine rice or other white rice.

Did you remove the veg from the wok and then cook the shrimp or did you just cook the shrimp into the veg?

Good stir fry! I am going to have to try this one. I does concern me that the word I have to type for verification was "reeks".

I just got a ton of shrimp from the Gulf - a truck comes up once a month. And here you are with a recipe brimming with health and taste. Bookmarked. (Although you do have me missing my fresh zucchini.)
