Sous Vide Ginger Shrimp Stir Fry Recipe
Quick stir fries are some of my favorite weeknight meals. They come together so quickly, and it's easy to add a ton of flavor to them. Plus you can use up whatever vegetables you have in the fridge! This stir fry has a great ginger bite to it and is rounded out with some fish sauce and soy sauce. I love to top it with shrimp, but it works equally well with chicken, pork, or even beef.
Shrimp is great when cooked from 122°F to 140°F (50°C to 60°C). I prefer it around 131°F (55°C) but my wife likes it at the higher 140°F (60°C). You really only need to heat the shrimp through, which usually takes 15 to 35 minutes.
I usually give the shrimp a quick sear at the end, but you can skip it for more tender shrimp.
