Shrimp Stir Fry with Bok Choy and Wax Beans

Nicole Pellegrini shares this delicious stir fry recipe and others on her blog, “South Jersey Foodie.” If you can’t find the Japanese buckwheat noodles (soba) she offers some excellent substitutions (whole wheat spaghetti or brown rice).
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 20 min
Servings: 2
8 ounces Japanese buckwheat noodles (soba)*
2 Tablespoons Vegetable oil
3 cloves Garlic – minced
1/2 medium Yellow onion – minced
1/2 pound cleaned and deveined large Shrimp (remove shells at the same time)
1/2 pound Wax beans – ends trimmed and sliced diagonally into 1-inch pieces
1 large Bok choy or 2 baby Bok choy – sliced into 2-inch pieces
2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Sweet Chili Sauce
1/4 cup Chinese Rice Wine
*(Note: Whole wheat spaghetti can be substituted for the buckwheat noodles. Or brown rice could also be used, but remember to allow additional cooking time for the rice. The soba needs to be rinsed after cooking in order to remove residual starchiness and floury taste after cooking.)
1. Bring a pot of unsalted water to a boil. Add the buckwheat noodles and gently stir until submerged. Cook according to package directions – soba may take from 3 – 7 minutes to cook depending on width and size of noodles. When fully cooked, strain noodles and rinse in cold running water. Leave submerged in cool water until ready to serve.
2. Heat 1 Tablespoon of vegetable oil in a wok over medium-high heat until oil surface is shimmering. Add minced garlic and onion and stir fry for 1 minute. Add shrimp and cook until they turn opaque and pink, about 3 minutes. Remove shrimp from wok and set aside.
3. Add additional tablespoon of vegetable oil to the wok, reheat and add wax beans. Stir fry for 4 minutes until still crunchy but just turning tender.
4. Add bok choy and cook until wilted, 2 minutes. Add rice wine, chili sauce and soy sauce and toss with the vegetables. Return shrimp to the wok and toss, warming through.
5. Serve stir fry over the cooked soba noodles, with additional sweet chili sauce on the side if desired.
