I made for my family, Shrimp with Bok Choy, Sriracha and Shirataki Noodles, a quick and easy stir fry dinner.  The shrimp sizzled alongside the fresh vegetables, which were sautéed in a light garlicky ginger sauce.

The mouthwatering aroma rising from the skillet prepared us for what was to be a very satisfying dinner.  The only complaint from my hungry family was I should have added more of the Shirataki Noodles.  I'll know better next time!

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. They're a dieter's dream and a perfect pasta substitute.  You can read all about them here.

Guilt-free noodles are what Shirataki Noodles should actually be called. I tried these remarkable noodles out for the first time the other evening and they were a huge hit with my family.  You'll be surprised to know they taste almost like regular pasta.

I combined the flavorful bok choy with plump snow peas and sweet red peppers, which rounded the dish out nicely.  I happen to love cooking with Bok Choy and find it cooks so quickly that it's a great addition to any stir fry recipe.  I found a wonderful tutorial from Jaden Hair of Steamy Kitchen on how to cut, clean and cook bok choy.  It's definitely worth a read.

If you're cooking this dish for your family and young children are involved, please take note, I only used 1/2 teaspoon of sriracha and my kids thought the  sauce was perfect.  My husband and I would have liked a little more spiciness, but since sriracha is so spicy and a drop or two can make a huge difference, add a little at a time until you reach your preferred level of spiciness.

Enjoy!
