Remember the package David from Earthy Delights sent us? It is the package that keeps giving! Every time, I start to use something new, I smile to myself as it is always so fun to try new ingredients. 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 got to work on this new recipe for Black Garlic Stir Fry Shrimp.
The depth and the sweetness of the black garlic adds a very intense flavor to the dish, almost syrupy. For veggies, I used what was on hand, celery, carrots and green onions and I cooked them just until they were slightly warmed through and still crunchy. The noodles added a nice silky texture that brought the dish together.
Recipe: Aged Black Garlic Stir Fry Shrimp
1 lb peeled and deveined shrimp
4 celery ribs, sliced thinly at a slant
4 green onions, sliced thinly at a slant
2 carrots, sliced thinly at a slant
1 head of aged black garlic, peeled and sliced thinly
1/4 cup canola oil
1 package rice noodles, soak for 8 – 10 minutes, drain well
1/8 cup sesame oil
4 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons mirin wine
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
Make the sauce, by combining sesame oil, soy sauce, sugar, mirin wine, and ginger, stir and set aside.
Heat 1/2 of the canola oil in a wok or deep dish saucepan until very hot, add shrimp, cook until pink, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
Add rest of the canola oil, garlic, onions, celery, and carrots and stir-fry for about 10 minutes, until warmed but still crispy. Remove from heat and set aside.
Add noodles to the pan and stir-fry for about 3 minutes, add the sauce, veggies and shrimp and warm for about 3 minutes.

Tried this tonight. Very good! Added cilantro when served. Next time I will add some crushed red or chili pepper.

gluten free foods are very helpful specially for those people that have very bad allergies to it ,,

I love garlic and would like to try black garlic but I guess that will have to wait until I return to Fl in November.
I have loved seeing the recipes you and Steamykitchen have made using EarthlyDelight's products. We are major foodies ourselves and love to experience unusual seasonings whenever we encounter them on our journeys.

This looks awesome! I keep seeing more and more of this black garlic. I would love to try it. By the way, just wanted to let you know I finally ordered the Donna Hay book from your Amazon store. I'm excited to get it! Thanks for the recommendation.
