Deb Lund


Left over cooked Shrimp? I love making up new recipes. Enjoy this simple stir fry that is tasty and low in calories.

pinch tips: How to Perfectly Cook Fish in a Pan


2 small portions


5 Min


15 Min


1/2 Tbsp
peanut oil ( you can substitute any oil for this)
celery stalk diced
1/4 c
diced onion
1 c
leftover cooked rice
2-3 Tbsp
soy sauce
1/2 tsp
chinese five spice powder
1/4-1/2 tsp
red pepper flakes ( more or less to taste)
leftover cooked shrimp, remove tails

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat a non stick stir fry pan or large saute pan to medium to high heat on stovetop. Add oil.
Add celery. Cook for 2 minutes stirring constantly. Then add onions and again stir for 2-3 minutes. Onions should be just starting to soften.
Add rice, soy sauce, 5 spice powder and red pepper flakes, turn down temp to low-medium and continue to stir to heat thoroughly about 5 minutes. If rice is dry add a tablespoon of water but no more
Add Shrimp and stir for 1 minute. Be sure the shrimp is thoroughly covered with all ingredients. Cover pan and turn off heat. Let sit for 2-3 minutes. Do not cook shrimp again as they will become rubbery.
Serve on two small plates for you and a friend who is also watching her weight. Cut up an apple in slices to garnish on the side. Serve with a wine spritzer and you have a rather tasty elegant lunch. Not counting the spritzer, its about 250 calories a serving.
