Shrimp, Asparagus, dried fruits (raisins, apricots), rice cooker

Here's a flavorful stir-fry that'll make your taste buds dance! We're combining succulent shrimp, crisp asparagus, and the sweet touch of dried fruits. All served over perfectly cooked rice from your rice cooker. Let's get cracking!


  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup dried apricots, chopped
  • 2 cups jasmine rice
  • 3 cups water (for the rice cooker)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, minced
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 green onion, chopped (for garnish)
  • Sesame seeds (optional, for garnish)


  1. Rinse the jasmine rice thoroughly under cold water until the water runs clear.
  2. Add the rice and 3 cups of water to your rice cooker. Turn it on and let it do its magic. Should take about 15-20 minutes.
  3. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper.
  4. In a large pan, heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil over medium-high heat.
  5. Add the shrimp and cook until pink and opaque, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  6. In the same pan, add the remaining tablespoon of vegetable oil.
  7. Toss in the minced garlic and ginger, and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  8. Add the asparagus and stir-fry until tender-crisp, about 3-4 minutes.
  9. Return the shrimp to the pan.
  10. Add the raisins and dried apricots.
  11. Pour in the soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sesame oil. Stir everything together until well-coated and heated through, about 2 minutes.
  12. Fluff the cooked rice and divide it among four plates.
  13. Top with the shrimp and asparagus stir-fry.
  14. Garnish with chopped green onion and sesame seeds, if using.

There you have it, a stir-fry that's not only delicious but also packed with a variety of textures and flavors. Get it on the table and watch everyone dig in. Cheers!
