What is Miso?
According to Fine Cooking miso is a Japanese condiment that originally came from China. Doujiang, the Chinese predecessor to miso, was invented as a way to preserve soybeans. The plant was an important crop for replenishing the soil, but the beans spoil quickly. The Chinese turned to fermentation to preserve the beans and keep them edible. Miso was born.
Do I Need a Wok for Stir-frying?
Absolutely, not! Yes, I actually used my Le Cruset braiser to prepare this recipe and it turned out perfectly. Although, I should note I immediately ordered a wok because I sensed many more stir-fry dinners in our future.
Tips for Preparing Stir-Fry
Use a large skillet with rounded edges to prepare this recipe.
Don’t overcrowd the skillet! Too much shrimp and vegetables won’t allow room for proper cooking.
Stir-frys are quick so you’ll want to use a medium-high temperature when cooking. This allows the shrimp to cook through while the vegetables remain crisp.
