  • 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.

  • 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).
