Shrimp Asparagus Stir Fry

Life has a funny way of getting in the way of things. Case in point, my daughter is getting married this coming weekend and as a result I have been pretty busy. The planning and prep has taken me away from my cooking and blogging. But hey, I didn’t say life getting in the way was a bad thing! In fact, it is a great thing and I couldn’t be more proud of my daughter and her fiance. This weekend I wanted to focus on my photography so this recipe and associated post was really a set up for me to practice. However, the “practice” dish turned out so well I wanted to share it with you. This was a classic pantry night at the Buddha household featuring ingredients we had on hand for this dish. Now sit back, grab a nice glass of Chardonnay, and enjoy this post for Shrimp Asparagus Stir Fry.

The recipe was simple as I had fresh asparagus, shrimp, ginger, garlic, onions, and carrots on hand. The sauce was easy too, featuring Oyster Sauce, Rice Wine vinegar, and Corn Starch to thicken the sauce. Served over Soba Noodles this stir fry was delicious!
