Brussels sprouts take well to stir-frying. Here, their sweet and earthy flavor is a good complement to shrimp.

  • 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.

Cook's Notes

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

Fabulous recipe, have made several times and a few of my subs have been chicken (breast or thigh) cooked a bit before adding garlic mixture, leftover Italian sausage , even shrimp, HA HA , didn't have bean sprouts so subbed water chestnuts for a great crunch and top w/ sesame seeds.....this will stay in my weekly rotation

Easy and delicious! Made exactly as directed minus the raw scallion greens at the end (do not like raw onions) Love the combination of flavors. Will definitely make again!

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
