Something with a Kick -- Spicy Stir-Fry --

Shrimp and Vegetable Stir-Fry

It was such a humid weekend that my body craved spicy food. Yeah, spicy food WITH ice-cold beer. You know, something with a kick. I thought about making a Mexican dish once, but since I had so much cooked rice left, I went for a spicy stir-fry which goes well with both rice and beer.

Sorry, I can't post a recipe here because I didn't measure anything... as usual. But let me list the seasonings I used. They were: dou ban jiang, soy sauce, sugar, sake, salt, pepper and a little vinegar. Yep, I made it really spicy and garlicky (I wasn't going to see anyone that night, so who cares?) and I loved it so much.

That looks like something I'd fry up. I know that my fiancé would think it was a picture of my food as it looks so similar to my own stirfries (he doesn't seem to care for them as much as I do LOL)

Hi Nerissa,
So happy to hear that my stir-fry looks as good as yours. I bet your stirfries taste much better than mine, though. :) I tend to fry vegetables too long and they usually turn out a bit too soft rather than crispy.

'Spicy and garlicky' dish is a must-have in summer, isn't it?

Maybe my posts can be prescribed as an appetite enhancer, haha...

I know. I know. I've heard of the spicy rice cake (toppogi? not sure how you spell it) stir fry. It must be good. Dark chocolate and cayenne pepper... gelato?! Mmmm... sounds interesting. I wonder how spicy it is.

It's funny... I didn't like spicy food at all when I was a child, but now I crave it once in a while, especially in summer.
