Green Beans and Shrimp Stir-fry Recipe

Friday, January 31, 2014 | Labels: , |

Sometimes I just crave for something simple, something that reminds me of Mom's home cooking.  Growing up, green beans were not my favourite but after awhile, I definitely learned to appreciate the crunchy vegetables.  Today's dish is just a simple and rather healthy stir-fry of green (French) beans with small shrimp and some shallots.  The trick to this dish is to cook everything on high heat so I prefer to blanch the beans prior to stir-frying as I don't like them too crunchy, so it's entirely up to your preferences.  Great dish with rice, relatively low calorie and of course easy!

This dish is part of my Yuen Chun Recipes.

Here's wishing you all a very Happy New Year! May the year of the wood horse bring you health, wealth and happiness!


1 packet of French beans, remove hard part and sliced at angle (blanched in salted water for 3-5 minutes)
1 shallot, skin removed and sliced
4 cloves garlic, chopped roughly
12 small shrimp
2 teaspoons light soy sauce (I used Yuen Chun's)


Firstly, heat wok until almost smoking.  Add 4 tablespoons cooking oil and swirl to coat.  Add garlic and shallots.  Add soy sauce.  Fry till aromatic.  Add shrimp and stir quickly.  Add beans and stir everything to coat well. Serve hot.
