Ginger Shrimp and Zucchini-Noodle Stir-Fry from The Whole30 Fast & Easy Cookbook
Serves: 4 | Prep: 25 minutes | Cook: 10 minutes | Total: 35 minutes
Keeping a couple of 1-pound bags of peeled and deveined shrimp in your freezer means that with just a couple of fresh ingredients, dinner is a cinch to get on the table. And frozen shrimp thaw very quickly—just place them in cool water for 15 minutes or so, and change the water once.
In a small bowl, mix together the vinegar, coconut aminos, garlic, ginger, and salt.
Heat the sesame oil in an extra-large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until it just starts to become tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in the vinegar mixture and cook until slightly reduced, about 1 minute. Add the shrimp, bell pepper, and zucchini noodles.
Cook, stirring, until the shrimp are opaque and the vegetables are crisp-tender, 5 to 8 minutes. Top with the green onions and serve.
Steer clear of store-bought jars of minced ginger, as they almost always contain added sugar and/or soybean oil.
To make this recipe even faster, use cooked shrimp in place of the raw shrimp. Add after the vegetables are crisp-tender and continue to cook, stirring, until the shrimp are heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.
- 1/4 cup rice vinegar
- 3 tablespoons coconut aminos
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger (see Tips)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1-1/2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1 large yellow onion, slivered
- 1-1/2 pounds peeled and deveined medium shrimp (see Tips)
- 3 medium red and/or green bell peppers, cut into matchsticks
- 2 packages (10.7 ounces each) zucchini noodles; or 3 medium zucchini, spiralized, long noodles snipped if desired
- 3 green onions, sliced

-Full page photos of most dishes
-Variety in proteins used (chicken breasts, thighs, pork chops, pork tenderloin, ground pork, etc.)
-Good amount of one pan recipes
-Most recipes are meant to be complete meals including a balance of protein and veggies
-First few pages recap the program
-Few traditional breakfast dishes--this is when I really need it to be fast and easy!
-Serving sizes are much smaller than I'm used to eating. I feel it kind of steered away from one of the cornerstones of Whole30 which is to listen to your body, not focus on calories and restrictions. I learned to just increase the recipe by half in order to make it work for me and my family (2 adults, 3 small kids).
-I consider some of the recipes neither fast nor easy if you're not used to cooking or just don't like to do it. A better describing word would be 'basic' because the recipes are unfussy and uncomplicated, but they still require lots of chopping, prepping, and cooking.
-Some of the recipes have been outright bland. Most of them I've had to zhuzh them up with extra herbs and spices.
Just a quick word for my fellow halal and kosher cooks, there are quite a few pork based recipes in here. I usually just sub out the pork for a similar cut of chicken and it works out great!
After receiving the book, I read through all the recipes, marked the ones I thought my kids would like, and then had my pickiest eater (8 year-old son) look through the recipes I selected and pick the meals he thought looked good. I was very pleased that he chose 54 new recipes for our family to try! :) I put together a 30-day dinner menu and purchased ingredients for the first week (which is coming to and end as I right this review). Because I already had on hand many of the ingredients in the recipes we chose, I only spent $35 for 6 nights of dinners (+1 night of leftovers) for our family of 7. That is awesome and so far, EVERY RECIPE I'VE MADE HAS BEEN SOOOOO DELICIOUS!!!! My kids have been willing to try the new recipes because it wasn't just me that picked them out and they have also found them to be yum!
I usually try about 5 recipes from a cookbook before I make up my mind about whether or not it's a keeper. This one is definitely a keeper! The meals I've made using this book have been super yum AND satisfying (which means NOT food without breaks). This is what I've made so far:
p. 165 Hearty Chinese Egg Drop Soup - I was hesitant to make this at first, but it turned out really great! Who knew?
p. 139 Roasted Sausages with Potatoes & Cabbage - I doubled the potatoes and roasted them on a separate baking pan than the sausages and cabbage (perks of having a double oven). This was surprisingly filling! My hubby beat me to the left-overs the next day!
p. 171 Green Chili Pork Stew - Super yum! My kids suggested I add carrots next time. I enjoyed the left-overs!
p. 193 Italian Beef Soup - So, so good, but NOT food without breaks. Very satisfying! Next time I'll double the recipe so we can have leftovers.
p. 121 Roasted Potato and Kale Hash with Eggs - Superb! The spices really work well on the potatoes and the eggs make it satisfying! So delish!!!
Tonight we're going to try the Thai Chicken Sweet-Potato-Noodle Bowls on p. 160. I've given an A+ to all of those recipes I've tried and I am really looking forward to making more "Fast & Easy" meals for ALL my family! Melissa Hartwig's book should have been titled "Whole30 Fast, Easy, & Sooooo Delish!"
