Why This Recipe Works

  • This shrimp stir fry recipe is so easy to make and can be ready in just 10 minutes!
  • Shirataki Noodles are thin, translucent noodles made from Konjac flour, which comes from the roots of the yam-like Konjac plant grown in Japan and China. They're low carb, low calorie, gluten free, and contain no fat or cholesterol. You can read all about them here.
  • If you can get fresh shrimp, great. If not, it's okay. Frozen packaged shrimp makes it easy. I usually buy bags of frozen shrimp and keep them stashed in my freezer for quick meals.

Ingredient Notes

See recipe box below for ingredient amounts and full recipe instructions.

  • Olive oil: I use extra virgin olive oil in this shrimp recipe as well as in every other recipe on ZagLeft that calls for olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil is the least processed form of olive oil. It is an unrefined oil and the highest-quality olive oil you can buy. Because of the way extra virgin olive oil is made, it retains more true olive taste. It also contains more of the vitamins and minerals found in olives. It's my favorite type of olive oil to use but you may use a lighter olive oil instead.
  • Garlic: Finely chopped fresh garlic adds quite a lot of flavor to this dish. If you don't have fresh, use 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder.
  • Ginger: I love adding ginger to my stir fry recipes. Use ground for convenience or use fresh, peeled, and minced ginger.
  • Shrimp: I use peeled and deveined large shrimp.
  • Vegetables: Bok choy, snow peas, red pepper.
  • Soy sauce: I like to use low-sodium soy sauce.
  • Shirataki Noodles: Shirataki Noodles are traditional Japanese noodles made from Konjac flour. They're a great replacement for pasta and I guarantee they will satisfy any cravings for pasta you may have!
  • Sriracha sauce: For flavor and spice.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Peel Shrimp?

  • Pull off the legs.
  • Using your fingers, crack open the underside of the shell and peel it off.
  • Pinch the tail where it meets the body of the shrimp and pull off.

How Do I Devein Shrimp?

  • Gently run a paring knife along the back of the shrimp.
  • Look for the vein. It will look like a long, dark, gritty string. Using the tip of your knife, pull it out.
