Remember the package David of Earthy Delights sent us?  It is the package that keeps giving!  Every time, I start to use something new, I just smile, as it is always so much fun.  This time was no exception.  David was so kind to include this culinary must have, Aged Black Garlic.  I thought it would go really well with a simple stir-fry of shrimp with rice noodles (gluten-free), so I whipped up this recipe for Black Garlic Stir Fry Shrimp.


The depth and the sweetness of the garlic added a very intense flavor to the dish, almost syrupy.  For veggies, I used what was on hand, celery, carrots and green onions and I only cooked them until they were slightly warmed through and still crunchy.  The noodles added a nice silky texture to tie the dish together.
