Shrimp and Asparagus Stir Fry Meal Prep

An easy stir fry that you can quickly prep ahead of time for the whole week! Simply add brown rice and you’re set!

I could eat this meal prep bowl for days.

I mean, I actually have been eating this for days.

But I’m far from getting sick of it.

And I’ve swapped out the asparagus for some broccoli for variation.

It works both ways.

Or you can even have broccoli and asparagus in the same bowl.

I’m kind of a genius.

Also, note that cooked shrimp lasts for 3-4 days in the fridge.

But as always, methods for optimal food storage and shelf life should be based on good judgment and what you are personally comfortable with.

The only thing to remember though is this.

Carry a bottle of Sriracha with you wherever you go.

So you can drizzle that right on prior to serving.

Where do you buy the black meal prep containers? Do they have lids?

You can find these containers on Amaon.com. And yes, they have lids.

Could you please post the nutritional information for this meal? It looks delicious. Thank you!!

Don’t think I’ve ever had shrimp with asparagus before? Sounds and look lovely though! Nice one 🙂

Cool photography, makes this recipe look lovely – which I’m sure it is! I didn’t realise cooked shrimp would last that long, thanks for the tip.

That looks wonderful! thank you for sharing! (:

Is there an alternative for rice wine vinegar? Nice recipe as always!

Cider vinegar would be a great substitute.

I used apple cider vinegar because that’s what I had handy and it worked really well!

Shrimp and asparagus? You won me there. I love both of these ingredients and since they’re together in this dish, I can already tell it’s super delicious. I’m gonna try it tomorrow already 😀

Made this for my family tonight. It was so yummy.

Perfect recipe! I’d add balsamic vinegar 🙂

I see the nutritional info for this but is there a way to get the nutritional info without the brown rice?

I didn’t have asparagus, but had broccoli, red pepper, onion, peas, water chestnuts…I can attest this woman’s recipe is DAMN DELICIOUS! It was the best stir fry I have ever eaten and most definitely the best I have even made. I picked up her cook book and first made her faux “chicken” cauliflower. You can use any sauce of hers you like, including this one with that technique it too is so brilliant I can hardly find the words adequate to praise her. Daham! It is that good! Get her cookbook it is brimming with fabulous recipes from a truly masterful chef! Thanks Chungah! Woman you ROCK!

what do you mean “prep ahead of time for a whole week”? do you freeze after prep? If not, they are kept in they are kept in the frig for a week? how much time in the microwave to reheat?
The recipe looks delicious and would love to prepare this before company arrives. Please let me know the steps for reheating.

Yes, you can keep the meal prep containers in the fridge if you are prepping this for the whole week. You can either reheat this on the stove in a pan or microwave it.

Are Oyster Sauce and Fish Sauce pretty similar/can they be interchanged?

Fish sauce is a watery sauce made from anchovies. It is a staple in Thai and Vietnamese cooking.

Oyster sauce is much sweeter. It is a thick sauce made from oysters. It is a staple in Chinese cooking.

I’m sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, but when you say serving size per container 4 does that mean this recipe makes 4 containers of food and each container is 236 calories? Thank you

Yes, that’s exactly right!

Any suggestions for an oyster sauce replacement? I am allergic to oysters!

Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

have you made this using frozen shrimp? Thanks 🙂

I actually haven’t! But you can easily thaw frozen chicken by running it under cold water. The shrimp should be ready to cook in about 15 minutes!

This was freakin amazing! Loved it!
