We are borderline obsessed with Dorot's pre-portioned frozen cubes of garlic, onion, and herbs. All-natural, easy to use... Convenience to the max! The Dorot Crushed Ginger gives this recipe the perfect flavor boost. Just pop it out of the tray and into your skillet! Find the entire Dorot line in supermarket freezer aisles. (It's under the name Pop & Cook at Walmart!)

1 lb. (about 2 medium) zucchini
2 cups frozen Asian-style stir-fry veggies
8 oz. (about 16) raw large shrimp, peeled, tails removed, deveined
2 tbsp. thick teriyaki sauce or marinade

Using a spiral vegetable slicer, cut zucchini into spaghetti-like noodles. (If you don’t have a spiral veggie slicer, peel zucchini into super-thin strips, rotating the zucchini after each strip.) Roughly chop for shorter noodles.
Bring a wok (or large skillet) sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add frozen veggies, shrimp, and ginger cube. Cook and stir until shrimp are fully cooked, veggies and ginger have thawed, and excess liquid has evaporated, about 4 minutes.
Add zucchini noodles, and cook and stir until slightly softened, about 3 minutes.
Remove from heat, and stir in teriyaki sauce.
