I love healthy versions of my favorite Chinese food recipes! Growing up, we often ordered Chinese food, and while I have a clear memory of how delicious it was, it’s obvious now how unhealthy those dishes can be. This garlic sauce is thick and flavorful, and reminds me so much of a yummy oyster sauce I used to order as a kid!

I love serving this dish over cauliflower rice, but white rice would be delicious too!

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add green beans and season with salt and peppers. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until beginning to soften. Reduce heat and carefully pour 1/4 cup water in hot skillet (it will sputter, so be careful of steam) and cover pan with a tight fitting lid to steam for 10 minutes. Monitor carefully to make sure the water does not completely evaporate before the beans have steamed, adding more if necessary so they do not burn.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together coconut aminos, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, sesame oil and sriracha and set aside.
  3. In a separate small bowl whisk arrowroot and 4 teaspoon water to make a slurry to thicken the sauce. Set aside.
  4. Once beans have steamed, uncover and add shrimp and toss. Add in coconut aminos sauce ingredients, mixing to ensure it cooks evenly.
  5. When shrimp has cooked through, add in slurry and bring to a simmer to thicken. Once thickened, immediately remove from heat.
  6. Serve hot and serve over cauliflower rice or white rice.

  • Just had this for dinner. It was awesome and tasted just like my favorite restaurant, but healthier. My beans were done in just 5 minutes and I added a bit of crushed red pepper to the sauce. Thanks for the great recipe.

  • So much flavor in such a simple and quick dish. This will definitely become a go to meal when I’m pressed for time and need a healthy meal on the table fast. Can’t wait to try it with chicken breast or even ground turkey. Thanks for another wonderful recipe!

  • If you are looking for a fast and super tasty Asian flavored meal this is the one! You can have it on the table in less time than going for takeout . We served it on top of coconut cauliflower rice and the whole family went back for seconds. If you don’t have shrimp I feel like any other protein you have on hand would be just as delicious!

  • This is a great tasting, quick alternative to take out. I pre-cleaned shrimp over the weekend & pre-mixed the sauces/slurry to dinner came together in a snap. The fresh green beans at my market didn’t look so good so I used a 12 oz bag of frozen & stir fried till done. Served it with brown rice, will definitely be making it again!
