Japanese Style Shrimp Stir-Fry

Yesterday, I shared a recipe with y'all for a Creamy Shrimp Stir-Fry and I promised to follow-up today with the recipe for the other stir-fry I made with shrimp.  I had some people mention that they aren't big seafood eaters or that they don't like shrimp in particular, so I encourage you crazy land-lubbers to try out these recipes with pork chops, ground beef, chicken, turkey, tofu, or whatever tickles your fancy!  :)  Cooking should be fun and where is the fun in following someone else's rules?  I view recipes as suggestions.  I love to read over a recipe to see what flavor combinations someone else uses.  I love to take a recipe and tweak it so that it suits mine & Mr. Robinson's taste buds.  Anyway...

Japanese Style Shrimp Stir-Fry  

This was my lunch today and it was so yummu!  I've not had shrimp for two days in a row and I'm totally fine with that, really.  The only thing that would have made this meal better was if I could have eaten it over rice & topped it off with some of that yummy Japanese White Sauce.  Which I have a homemade recipe for...which makes the most amazing white sauce you've ever eaten....which is extremely unhealthy so I did not make any.

...the ingredients...
.whole baby carrots
.one small can of corn, drained
.diced squashed
.diced zucchini
.a tiny bit of celery
.low sodium soy sauce
. sesame seeds

I cooked it in a skillet/frying-pan.  Let the veggies saute and cook down for a while before you add the shrimp.  Ta-Da!  A healthy, filling meal that has all of the flavors of Japanese food without the expensive prices and naughty calories or fat.  I have had the best time using different seasonings to create flavors I crave and STILL eating healthy meals!    

Hope you enjoyed!  :)  What's on your plate?
