Stir-frying in Vietnamese cuisine

Stir-frying is an important cooking technique in Vietnam. Even today, not many households have an oven so for most families, the only way to cook food is on stove-top. That explains why we make stir-fry regularly, for both daily meals and special occasions.

We always have a vegetable medley stir-fry dish in special occasion meals, especially in death anniversary meals. Death anniversary is an occasion when members of an extended family gather in honor of a deceased family member. We burn incense sticks for the deceased person and prepare a banquet with traditional foods including vegetable medley stir-fry. Some of the other dishes are boiled chicken, fried spring rolls, and steamed sticky rice.

This stir fry features shrimp and crisp veggies, which are red bell peppers, snow peas and mung bean sprouts. First, we need to stir fry the veggies quickly. Next, brown the shrimps and then add the veggies back to the pan. Finally, add the sauce and stir well to coat all ingredients with it. That’s all the steps you need to do for this savory and sweet Asian shrimp and veggies stir-fry.

You can use any proteins you like in stir-fry. Beef, pork, chicken, shrimp or squid, pick whatever your heart desires. Some other vegetables suitable for stir frying are broccoli, kohlrabi, cauliflower, green bean and zucchini. I also have a recipe for Sautéed shrimp and zucchini.
