Shrimp and Vegetables with Thick Soy Sauce

This Shrimp and Vegetables with Thick Soy Sauce is delicious. I used shrimp but you can use any other type of protein of your choice. Organic tofu would be great in this.

Shrimp and Vegetables with Thick Soy Sauce
So today I just didn’t know what to do for lunch. Lunch is the largest meal for Spaniards and even though I am here, I still keep this tradition going. After all, I think the largest meal should be eaten during the day, while you are still going, and not at night while you are winning down :-)

Anyhow, this Shrimp and Vegetables with Thick Soy Sauce me no time to put together, that is how I like it :-) because in between cleaning, cooking, feeding the baby, etc I can not spend to much time cooking in the kitchen. I need something quick, easy and nutritious and this fits the bill.

I also like the fact that my rice cooker helps me with this. I find it much easier cooking rice this way than doing it any on the stove. To tell you the truth I don’t remember the last time I made rice the old fashion way, love my cheap rice cooker :-)

If you make this Shrimp and Vegetables with Thick Soy Sauce try your hardest to use reduced sodium because even using this type of soy sauce I still find it a bit on the salty side. Maybe it is just me, and once again any veggies will go with this recipe.

Enjoy it anyways!

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 6 servings

Total Time: 20 minutes


1 lb cooked large shrimp
1 red onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 cups fresh broccoli florets
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp unrefined sugar
2-4 tbsp sweet and sour chili sauce
3 tsp cornstarch
1 tbsp ginger or garlic, minced
2 tbsp olive oil
Red pepper flakes, optional
2 cups uncooked brown rice


Cook the brown rice according to package instructions.

In a mixing bowl, mix together soy sauce, vinegar, chili sauce, brown sugar, and cornstarch.

On high to medium heat heat oil in a skillet. Add onions, peppers and garlic. Cook for about 3-5 minutes. Add broccoli and carrots and cook further for another 2-3 minutes. Don't over cook the broccoli.

Add shrimp and soy sauce mixture and cook for about 1-2 minutes, until heated through. The sauce will thicken a little bit.

Serve over rice and sprinkle some pepper flakes if you would like some heat.
