- Choose shrimp that are fresh, firm and have a mild smell.
- For the chicken, pick a cut that is boneless and skinless for easy preparation.
- Instead of chicken, use tofu for a vegetarian option. Tofu is a great source of plant-based protein, and its texture and flavor will make a great substitute for the chicken.
- Instead of shrimp, use tempeh for a vegan option. Tempeh is a fermented soy product that is high in protein and has a nutty flavor that will work well in this stir fry.
