Saucy Gingered Shrimp with Zucchini & Red Peppers

Saucy Gingered Shrimp with Zucchini & Red Peppers

Mirin, a sweetened Japanese cooking wine, adds a sweet accent to the fresh flavors of this shrimp and vegetable stir-fry. Carrots and turnips are good cool-weather substitutes for the zucchini and peppers.

Serves 6

Prep Time 35 min

Total Time 35 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 large red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 small zucchini, chopped
  • 1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped jalapeño pepper
  • 2 tablespoon finely chopped shallot
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 3/4 cup fish stock, or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoon mirin, or cream sherry (see Note)
  • 2 large vine-ripened tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3 tablespoon finely chopped scallions
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add bell pepper and zucchini; cook until barely tender, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a dish and reserve.

Step 2

Add 1 tablespoon oil to the pan and increase heat to medium-high. When oil is hot but not smoking, add shrimp and jalapeño; sauté until the shrimp are nicely browned, 1 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a dish and set aside.

Step 3

Add the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to the pan, then add shallot, ginger and garlic; sauté until the mixture is soft but not brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour in wine and lime juice; boil until reduced to a glaze, 3 to 5 minutes. Pour in stock (or broth) and mirin (or sherry); boil until reduced to 2 tablespoons, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.

Step 4

Dissolve cornstarch in water in a small bowl; whisk into simmering mixture and cook, stirring, until the sauce thickens slightly, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to low, add scallions, cilantro, the reserved vegetable mixture and shrimp (with their juices) to the pan and just heat through. Season with salt and pepper.
