    Instructions

    1. Mix together all sauce components & keep chilled until ready to use.

    Cooking Shrimp

    1. Prep your shrimp & vegetables while your starch of choice is cooking.
    2. Prepare your vegetables by cutting into similar sizes & shapes, so that they will cook evenly.
    3. Separate the “hard” veggies from the “soft” indifferent bowls.
    4. Heat a large (12-inch) sauté pan with 2 tbl. Canola oil. Get it nice and hot.
    5. Add shrimp to hot pan & do not overcrowd the pan! Shrimp should sizzle when placed in pan.
    6. Cook 2½ minutes per side. Remove and set aside.

    Cooking Veg

    1. Wipe out excess oil and add 2 tbl. clean oil and heat pan.
    2. Add a single layer of the hard veg and allow to cook. Stir every 30 seconds. *They are done when they are no longer raw, but still crisp*
    3. Remove hard veg from pan & reserve in a bowl. Add a bit more oil to pan.
    4. Add your soft veg in one layer and allow to cook over high heat. *This should take no longer than 30 seconds*
    5. Remove the soft veg to the bowl.

    Finishing the Dish

    1. Put pan back on heat and add ¼ - ⅓ cup of Mother-in-Law Sauce.
    2. Bring to a quick simmer. Then add shrimp, scallions, and veggies back to pan and toss together well. Everything should be coated in the sauce.
    3. Serve immediately and top with Cilantro leaves.
