The beauty of a stir-fry is how fast it comes together, and this shrimp stir-fry is proof. The secret sauce, so to speak, is a mix of honey, umami-rich soy sauce, and a kick of chile-garlic sauce for a sweet, spicy mixture that deliciously coats the shrimp and tender rice noodles. The sauced up noodles and shrimp are accompanied by meaty shiitake mushrooms and crisp ribbons of bok choy. It really doesn't get much better than this easy dinner packed with veggies, protein, and a whole lot of flavor.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup honey

  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon Asian chili-garlic sauce

  • 1 ½ teaspoons grated garlic (from 3 cloves)

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

  • 3 tablespoons canola oil, divided

  • 1 5-oz. pkg. sliced fresh shiitake mushrooms (3 cups)

  • 3 heads baby bok choy, sliced (4 cups)

  • 1 pound peeled, deveined extra-large raw shrimp, patted dry

  • 1 8-oz. pkg. rice stick noodles, soaked according to pkg. directions

Directions

  1. Whisk honey, vinegar, soy sauce, chili-garlic sauce, garlic, and cornstarch in a small bowl.

  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Add bok choy; cook, stirring often, until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer mushroom mixture to a medium bowl.

  3. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add shrimp; cook, flipping occasionally, until just opaque in centers, 2 to 3 minutes. Add honey mixture and soaked and drained noodles to skillet. Cook, stirring constantly, until sauce is thickened and noodles are coated in sauce, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in mushroom mixture.
