2 Tablespoons Organic Shelled Hemp Seed
2 Tablespoons NEXT STEP Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, divided
1 pound large peeled and deveined shrimp (preferably wild)
1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced

We love that this tasty stir-fry swaps out traditional, sodium-heavy soy sauce with the lighter liquid aminos. This recipe was created by Chef Phoebe Lapine, exclusively for The Vitamin Shoppe.
1. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the liquid aminos, sesame oil, raw honey, and hemp seeds.
2. Heat 1 tablespoon coconut oil in a wok or large nonstick skillet. Add the shrimp and stir-fry over high heat until pink, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
3. Add the remaining oil and stir-fry the onion, peppers, squash and shitakes until lightly charred, 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Stir in the chard and cook until wilted, 2 minutes. Add the sauce and simmer until it thickens slightly, 2 minutes. Fold in the shrimp and cook one minute more. Serve over brown rice or quinoa.
