Spicy Shrimp and Brussels Sprout Stir-fry
After eating my weight in candy and cookies, I am ready for something a little lighter. A tad healthier. Something with some color other than chocolate brown. Something light, but still substantial because it is freezing outside - so no wimpy salads need apply. In steps Spicy Shrimp and Brussels Sprout Stir-Fry to the rescue. Stir fries are so nice, aren't they? Once the prep is done, you are just whipping out dinner in no time and all those little bowls and piles of mise en place makes me feel like such a chef.
After discovering the joy that is Roasted Brussels Sprouts, I wasn't sure how I would feel about these slivers of it laced through my stir fry. Turns out I had nothing to worry about, this was so good.
The Brussels Sprouts and the bean sprouts paired so nicely with the shrimp. Served over some brown rice and some fresh lime wedges to squeeze over the top, it was just what I needed! Using my favorite Benriner Japanese Mandolin Vegetable Slicer - it made quick work of the Brussels sprouts, so this came together really easy.
