Gently cooking the vegetables all at once makes this stir-fry less intimidating and foolproof. Prep your ingredients ahead of time and cook the vegetables while the pasta water boils, and you can have dinner on the table in little over 30 minutes.

Active time: 30 min
Total time: 40 min
Serves: 2


  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon seasoning sauce (Maggi)
  • 1 tablespoon dark sweet soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
  • 8 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 6 ounces broccolini, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup thinly sliced shiitake mushrooms, stems removed (about 6 ounces)
  • ½ medium yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and julienned
  • 1 pound spot shrimp, peeled, deveined, and coarsely chopped
  • 8 ounces spaghetti, cooked in unsalted water and drained


Make the Sauce

In a small bowl, combine fish sauce, seasoning sauce, dark sweet soy sauce, ginger, and black pepper. 

Make the Stir-fry

In a medium skillet with high sides, heat the olive and sesame oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add the garlic and cook until softened, about 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in broccolini, mushrooms, onion, and carrot, and cook, stirring frequently until nearly tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Add shrimp and stir-fry until the shrimp is cooked through and broccolini is tender, about 2 minutes.

Combine and Serve

Increase heat to medium-high, add the cooked spaghetti and sauce mixture, and cook, tossing, until everything is well-coated and heated through, about 2 minutes. Divide between 2 bowls and serve immediately.
