I’m having so much fun with these monthly recipe challenges! I’m part of the Cultured Kitchen Ambassador program through Patak’s Canada and Blue Dragon Canada and every month, we are given a challenge to complete. Recipe challenges are the best kind because I get to experiment in the kitchen, try new ingredients and products and have a ton of fun. This month’s challenge was a focus on eating healthier by creating a stir fry recipe using one of Blue Dragon Stir Fry Sauces. With new year’s resolutions in full swing and people looking to include more veggies in their diet, the timing couldn’t be better.
Also, Chinese New Year is coming up soon and a stir fry is the perfect meal for the occasion. Let’s get to it!
Blue Dragon makes it super easy to prepare a mouthwatering stir fry for your family. Choose any one of their delicious Stir Fry Sauces, add your meat and veggies and you have a healthy, filling meal.
Take a peek at some of the yummy flavours:
- Broccoli Beef Stir Fry Sauce: a rich blend of ginger, garlic and sesame oil.
- Chilli Coconut Stir Fry Sauce: a creamy Thai style stir fry with green chillies and coconut milk.
- General Tao Stir Fry Sauce: a sweet and spicy sauce with soy sauce and red chilli.
- Honey Teriyaki Stir Fry Sauce: a sweet & savoury blend of Japanese soy sauce, honey, soybean paste and ginger.
- Sweet and Sour Stir Fry Sauce: a mix of sweet and sour ingredients spiked with star anise and red chopped chillies.
- Szechuan Pepper Stir Fry Sauce: a Szechuan inspired stir fry with tomato, Szechuan pepper and spicy chilli flakes.
I would have loved to share a recipe using ALL of them, but then this post would be a mile long. I know you’re busy! Instead, I selected one – the Blue Dragon Chilli Coconut Stir Fry Sauce to satisfy my cravings for Thai food. I used to work across the street from a Thai restaurant in Edmonton and I think I tried almost every dish on the menu!
I created this simple Chilli Coconut Shrimp Stir Fry. It’s loaded with fresh veggies and shrimp. I think chicken would have also worked well so if you aren’t a shrimp fan, try chicken instead.
I bought the already cooked shrimp to save myself a step. If you only have raw shrimp, cook it first before you add in your veggies.
I adore how colourful this dish is. It makes me want to dig in right now!
The Chilli Coconut Stir Fry sauce was creamy and spicy! I’d recommend having a big glass of cold water nearby. The flavour brought me back to my time in Edmonton working as an accountant and eating lunch with my coworkers. Ah the memories! It’s funny how food can do that to you.
Stir fries are always a hit in my family. Even broccoli-hating John gave the recipe a thumbs up. I have more veggies and meat added to my shopping list this week to try another Blue Dragon Stir Fry sauce flavour. The question is which one. I’m leaning towards Honey Teriyaki with chicken breasts!
