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. This sweet, spicy mixture 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.

  3. Add bok choy; cook, stirring often, until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer mushroom mixture to a medium bowl.

  4. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add shrimp; cook, flipping occasionally, until just opaque in centers, 2 to 3 minutes.

  5. 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.
