8 cups


  • 1 pound fresh or frozen medium shrimp

  • 3 tablespoons water

  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce

  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil or olive oil, divided

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger

  • 3 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated spaghetti-shaped noodle substitute, such as House Foods Tofu Shirataki brand

  • 1 (12 ounce) package fresh stir-fry vegetable medley, such as Dole brand

  • ¼ cup sliced scallions (2) (Optional)

  • ½ teaspoon toasted sesame oil


  1. Thaw shrimp if frozen. Peel and devein the shrimp, leaving tails intact if desired. Rinse the shrimp; pat dry with paper towels. Set aside. Meanwhile, whisk together the water, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, and Sriracha in a small bowl; set aside.

  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the canola oil (or olive oil) in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp, garlic, and ginger to the hot oil. Stir-fry about 2 minutes or until the shrimp are opaque. Remove the shrimp from skillet; set aside. Meanwhile, drain and rinse the noodle substitute; pat dry with paper towels.

  3. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon canola oil (or olive oil) in the skillet. Add vegetable medley to the hot oil; stir-fry 3 to 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add the noodle substitute and the hoisin sauce mixture to the vegetables in skillet; stir to coat. Return the shrimp to the skillet; toss together until heated through. Divide among four bowls. If desired, sprinkle with sliced scallions. Drizzle with sesame oil. Serve immediately (the sauce will thin as it stands).

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
