Wonton Shrimp Stirfry

Heyyyyyy it’s Tiffany from Creme de la Crumb! I can’t believe we are half way through June. HOW did that happen??? I am loving this summer more than ever though now that my twin kidlets are crawling around and we can enjoy the sunshine outside together. Every single day we walk to the park, or sit out on the grass in the backyard or in the kiddie pool and I tell ya, I probably love it more than they do.

We are so busy these days that quick, tasty, 30-minute meals are saving my sanity right now. This amazing shrimp stirfry was inspired by a popular Applebee’s dish and I am in love! The sauce is sweet and savory and a little spicy – everything I love in a good stirfry! Feel free to swap veggies for any you prefer or play with the amount of heat in the recipe – it’s easily customizable!

  1. My wife and I made this recipe tonight and all I have to say is, oh my goodness. I was staying in a hotel in northern Cincinnati early this week and ordered this off the menu. Told my wife about it in the morning and told her we had to find the recipe. Your recipe is spot on and we are still on a food “high”, lol. Thanks for putting this together, we will put this in the rotation for sure. Might even add a few more red pepper flakes next time.

  2. Hi! My father and I love your recipe! I was wondering if you would recommend making a batch of this sauce and either freezing or refrigerating it? Thanks!

  3. If you cook the shrimp thoroughly in the first step and then add sauce and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes don’t the shrimp tend to be over-cooked? I don’t like to over-cook my shrimp as they seem to turn rubbery.
