I’ve been experimenting a lot in the kitchen recently to prepare for my upcoming book. Not everything I make is going to make the final cut to go to print but it doesn’t mean it’s not worthy of a little link “love.”

Here’s a recipe I made with a calorie-conscious date-night in mind.

Check out some of my “rules” to creating a memorable date night with food.  This is a low-carb recipe with higher fat so it is satisfying.

Shrimp Shirataki Noodle Stir-Fry Recipe

Ingredients for 2 servings:

  • 14oz jumbo shrimp, peeled, deveined and raw (OR your choice of protein such as tempeh, chicken, beef)
  • 16oz tofu shirataki noodles (drained, patted dry on a paper towel)
  • Stir-fry:
    • 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
    • 1 celery stalk, thinly and diagonally sliced
    • 1 tablespoon safflower oil
  • Sauce:
    • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy
    • 1 tablespoon hot Chinese mustard (or jalapeño Dijon)
    • 1 teaspoon agave (optional)
    • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
    • 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
    • 1/2 tablespoon arrowroot starch (optional, as a thickener)
  • Garnish
    • 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
    • sesame seed
    • 3 green onions, thinly and diagonally sliced
    • lime

 

Steps:

  1. Set a nonstick skillet on medium heat and spray with a little olive oil or cooking spray.  Once the pan is hot, toss in the raw shrimp and cook for about 5 minutes until it is no longer pink.  Set the shrimp aside and using the same skillet, add safflower oil.
  2. Once the oil is hot, toss in the bell pepper and celery.  Cook until the outside edges are seared and the veggies are still crunchy.
  3. While the veggies are cooking, mix together the ingredients for the sauce and set it aside.
  4. Add the cooked shrimp and noodles to the skillet and toss the mixture together for about 1 minute.  Reduce the heat, then move the mixture to one side of the skillet and pour in the sauce.  Once the sauce begins to simmer/bubble, toss everything together in the skillet.
  5. Cook for about 1 -2 minutes more, then plate. Add the garnish (if desired) and enjoy.
