Prep all the ingredients before you begin the celery stir-fry--once the skillet is hot, the dish cooks in minutes. Cut zest from the orange with a vegetable peeler before you juice it. Source: EatingWell Magazine, January/February 2012

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Cut orange zest into fine slivers. Whisk orange juice, tamari (or soy sauce), honey and cornstarch in a small bowl until blended.

  • Heat a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat until hot enough to sizzle a drop of water. Add oil, celery and the orange zest. Stir-fry until the celery is crisp-tender, but still bright green, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in ginger and garlic. Add the orange juice mixture and onion and stir-fry just until the sauce thickens, about 1 minute. Serve sprinkled with peanuts.


People with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.

I've made this a few times now and it has been popular even with people who aren't fans of raw celery. I usually stir-fry my onions with the celery; the recipe makes it sound like they are added raw at the end. Cooks Illustrated has a pan-fried salmon recipe that includes a glaze made from balsamic vinegar brown sugar honey and orange juice that goes nicely with this. Read More
