Teriyaki Shrimp Stir Fry With Veggies and Udon Noodles

Hey everyone! This teriyaki shrimp stir fry with veggies and udon noodles is another recipe that's perfect for beginners!

I've recently been loving stir fries and I think they're perfect for beginners. The most complicated thing is the mis-en-place, getting all of your ingredients prepared. Check out the video below to see how I guide you through that process. Once you're all set, cooking it is a cinch! Shrimp is especially great if you're new to cooking because they cook in as little as three minutes! If you can get them peeled that's also a time-saver, but if not I'll show you how to peel them. Enjoy putting this awesome dish together!

Serves: 2

  • 2 packs udon noodles
  • 7 oz shrimp
  • 1 tsp ginger, grated
  • 1 cup frozen veggie medley
  • 1 red pepper, cut into triangles
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 tbsp teriyaki sauce
  • 4 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic, grated 
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp Chinese five-spice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a small bowl, add the teriyaki sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, honey, ginger and garlic, and corn starch. Mix well and set aside.
  2. Bring water up to a boil to cook the udon noodles. 
  3. Heat a wok on medium-high heat. Add the olive oil into the pan, then add the shrimp. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the shrimp change colour and a light sear. Do not cook the shrimp completely. Set aside and reserve any leftover oil. 
  4. Return the pan onto the heat and add the broccoli and red peppers adding more oil as necessary. Toss the veggies and stir, season with salt, pepper and chinese five-spice, and cook until the veggies get a nice sear.
  5. Add the vegetable medley mix into the pan and cook for another minute. Return the shrimp to the pan and add the sauce mixture. Mix all the ingredients, and turn the heat to medium-low. Cover the pan with a lid and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Cook the noodles in the water now.  
  6. Once the noodles and the stir fry have finished cooking, add the noodles to a plate and top with the veggie mixture. Serve hot and enjoy!
