Asparagus and Shrimp Stir Fry w/ Farro
 
 
4 Servings.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup Farro, cooked according to package instructions
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon peeled and grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon Toasted sesame seeds (you can toast them or buy already toasted)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed and cut diagonally into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1 pound large shrimp, cleaned and pre-cooked (found in the frozen section of grocery)
  • 1 teaspoon Asian (toasted) sesame oil
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, rice vinegar and grated ginger. Set aside.
  2. In a medium sized skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add asparagus and cook until tender, but still crisp (taste one to test) - about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir frequently.
  3. Add cherry tomatoes (keep whole, I cut mine in half and it produced too much liquid.). Cook mixture for another 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Stir in the soy sauce mixture and add shrimp to skillet. Cook for about 1 to 2 minutes to heat through.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in sesame oil.
  6. Toss with cooked farro and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
  7. Serve immediately (also, very good cold!)
