I was supposed to have leftover chicken, but we had to run over to a hardware store... which just so happens to be right by my favorite store. I decided that I wanted shrimp for dinner instead. I really like this dish, and my husband asked me to make it again!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This shrimp stir-fry recipe has a wonderful flavor combination. Lemongrass paste adds a subtle citrus flavor and enhances the sauce. The soy sauce adds some salt and cuts through the acidity of the orange juice. I served over some white rice and loved every bite. It's quick and easy to prepare too!

sunflower oil
4 Tbsp
