Okay – as you can tell by my lack of posts the past few months (haha), I’ve been super busy! In addition to being a full-time attorney at my firm, I have picked up a part-time job as a tutor as well.
So, with the theme of being busy, here’s another “lazy” dinner option for you. I made this one night and Alex literally inhaled it (I only ate a few bites because I only have 8 months left to lose more weight for our wedding! LOL)
I usually have instant yakisoba noodles (pictured below) in my pantry, along with frozen shrimp in my freezer, some kind of veggies, and I always have a variety of sauces in the fridge too. Throw it all together, and you have a quick and delicious meal!
To start, I took out my yakisoba and teriyaki sauce and put it aside.
I then threw some of the frozen shrimp into a pan with a little butter, oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper on medium heat. Once the shrimp was no longer frozen and was almost cooked through, I threw in chopped up asparagus, and put in more garlic powder (you can definitely use fresh garlic instead – which I didn’t have on hand).
Continue to let the shrimp and asparagus cook and take in the flavors from the seasoning (and I personally like my asparagus a little overcooked).
Once it’s done to your liking, put the shrimp and asparagus mixture aside.
Then, follow the instructions from the yakisoba package, using the instructed amount of water in a pan or pot and put the block of noodles in.
Once the water is starting to boil and the noodles are beginning to cook, pour in the seasoning packet that comes in the yakisoba package, and stir the seasoning into the noodles.
Once the yakisoba is done cooking (again, per the instructions on the yakisoba package), throw in the shrimp and asparagus, and cook for another minute to ensure everything is mixed together.
