Tofu Shrimp Stir-Fry two©

In a medium-sized skillet pour 1/8 cup of extra virgin olive oil, move the pan around in the air until the olive oil completely covers the pan.  Then pour in 1 Tbsp of soy sauce and 1 Tbsp of Worcestershire Sauce. Move the pan around to mix in with the other sauces.  You will notice that they will settle in bubble pockets, that’s ok.

Place (8) pieces of jumbo shrimp in the pan.  Turn the pan on low and simmer the shrimp.  Mix in 1 tsp of Trader Joe’s 21 Seasonings and 1 tsp of Goya Adobos.

Cut (8) 2″ cubes of tofu and toss them in the fry pan, mix well and keep on low, stirring regularly

Add 1/2 cup of snap peas, 1/2 baby corns, 1/4 sliced carrots, 1/4 sliced red onion, continue to stir regularly

Add 1 Tbsp of honey, mixing well.  Cook for 3 minutes and spread over white steamed rice and serve
