I had a few friends over for dinner last week for Moo Shu Shrimp. I am a HUGE fan of chinese take-out, but I know what it can do to your waistline. So, I found a recipe that is guilt free!


Moo Shu Shrimp

Serves 4

2 teaspoons peanut oil, divided
1 tablespoon minced garlic, divided
1 pound small shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 cups thinly sliced mushrooms
1 cup shredded carrot
1/2 cup chopped green onions
6 cups Napa cabbage, shredded
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon water
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon Sriracha (hot chile sauce, such as Huy Fong)
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
8 (6-inch) flour tortillas

Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic and shrimp; stir-fry 3 minutes or until shrimp are cooked through. Remove shrimp from pan; keep warm.
Add remaining 1 teaspoon oil to pan. Add remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic and mushrooms; stir-fry 1 minute or until mushrooms are tender. Add carrot and onions; stir-fry 2 minutes. Stir in cabbage; cook 2 minutes or until wilted.

Combine soy sauce, 1 tablespoon water, cornstarch, and Sriracha in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Stir soy sauce mixture into cabbage mixture. Remove from heat; stir in shrimp, tossing to coat. Serve with hoisin and tortillas.
