Surf and Turf Stir Fry

What could be better than a Surf and Turf Stir Fry?! Healthy crisp vegetables are combined with fresh caught shrimp and juicy chunks of New York strip. Make sure you marinate your shrimp in the refrigerator for a few hours before you begin to prepare your meal. This would be a fantastic mid-week meal — just prep your vegetables and pop the shrimp in the fridge before work and you will be all set to throw it together when you get home. The sauce is a blend of teriyaki and chicken broth thickened to perfection. We follow a low-salt diet — I rarely add salt to any recipe if it is not completely necessary. With this recipe I used Mrs. Dash Teriyaki Marinade and didn’t add any additional salt to the dish. This dish was built around the need to use our leftover steak in an interesting way — just add your cooked beef in along with the bok choy. Super supper!!



  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled & deveined
  • 3/4 pound lean beef steak, sliced the same size as the shrimp
