General Tso Shrimp

This healthy, homemade version of General Tso Shrimp stir fry is super simple to make and SO, SO delicious, plus it’s gluten-free friendly! The General Tso sauce is a little sweet and a little spicy, perfectly mellowed out by a big serving of crunchy, sweet snow peas and fluffy, tender rice. Say goodbye to takeout and hello to fake-out!

Lately, I’ve been dreaming of one of my favorite takeout meals — crispy, saucy General Tso Shrimp — and today seemed like a good day to make it a reality! I love ordering this at a Chinese restaurant, but sometimes I’d prefer to make a few ingredient swaps. Truth be told, I consider myself a healthy takeout ninja. It’s fun for me to recreate old favorites at home using natural ingredients, and it often costs less, too.
