Spicy Shrimp and Brussels Sprout Stir-Fry

  • prep: 20 mins
    total time: 20 mins
  • servings: 4




  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 pound brussels sprouts, trimmed and shredded
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 small green chile, such as Thai, thinly sliced
  • 3 scallions, white and green parts separated and thinly sliced
  • 1 pound medium shrimp (41 to 50), peeled and deveined (tails left on)
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • Lime wedges, for serving

Cook's Note

A food processor makes fast work of shredding sprouts. Or, do it by hand with a sharp knife.


  1. Step 1

    In a large skillet or wok, heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil over medium-high. In 2 batches, saute brussels sprouts until tender, 5 minutes total; season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a platter. Add bean sprouts to pan and cook until heated through, 1 minute; add to platter.

  2. Step 2

    Wipe out pan, add remaining tablespoon vegetable oil, and return to heat. Add garlic, chile, and scallion whites and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add shrimp, season with salt and pepper, and saute until opaque throughout, about 4 minutes. Add to platter, drizzle with sesame oil, top with scallion greens, and toss. Serve with lime wedges.

    Love this recipe. Quick, simple, healthy and easy. I served it with lemon herb couscous and it tasted like restaurant quality the first time.

    My family loves this recipe..even my picky twenty-something year old daughter. It's fresh, quick and different. We serve it with a side of white rice and as a Sunday dinner when you get home from church late but still want a quick home-cooked meal

    I am sooo happy that I decided to try this! I was afraid my kids would turn their noses up at the brussels sprouts, but they scoffed it down! Yay Sarah! I can't wait to try another winner from you! :D
