The flavor and combination of crisp vegetables in this dish is so delicious, you will not miss your go-to Chinese takeout at all. Coconut aminos—made from coconut sap—is a soy-free seasoning that imparts a savory, soy sauce–like flavor to food. Get yourself a couple sets of chopsticks for an authentic eating experience.

Category: Dinner

PREP TIME: 20 mins

COOK TIME: 10 mins TOTAL TIME: 30 mins


  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 cups snow peas, trimmed
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced on an angle
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • ½ cup unsalted cashews, roasted (see Tip), and coarsely chopped
  • 2 green onions, sliced


  1. In a small bowl, mix the vinegar, coconut aminos, garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes, and salt; set aside. 
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring, until just starting to become tender, about 3 minutes. 
  3. Stir in the vinegar mixture and cook until slightly reduced, about 1 minute. Add the shrimp, snow peas, and celery and cook, stirring, until the shrimp are opaque throughout, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the sesame oil and cashews. Top with the green onions. 

TIP If you can’t find roasted unsalted cashews, buy raw unsalted cashews and roast them in a 375°F oven for 6 to 7 minutes or until golden brown, stirring once.
