Potsticker Shrimp And Vegetable Stir Fry

Potsticker Shrimp Vegetable Stir Fry is made with All Natural Frozen Chicken and Vegetable Potstickers by Ling Ling, and extra-large shrimp, served on a luscious bed of stir fry vegetables. It’s quick, easy, and scrumptious!

A blogger friend of mine, Sandra at Sandra’s Easy Cooking, created an amazing dish using potstickers and shrimp. It looked so good! It was love at first sight! I knew I had to try my hand at creating my own version.

First up…add more vegetables! Our garden has produced enough squash this year to feed a third world country! So any way I can find to work it in is a win! That was the base of this dish. A hefty bed of stir fry vegetables with lots of squash!

Let’s get started on this fantastic shrimp dish…

Dice Squash, Onion, and Sweet Peppers.

In a large skillet place 2 teaspoons of Sesame Oil with 1 teaspoon minced garlic over medium high heat.

Add diced vegetables.

Chopped Vegetables in hot oil for stir fry

Season with Salt and Black Pepper.

Addition of seasonings for Veggie Stir Fry

Stir Fry over medium high heat, stirring constantly until vegetables are golden brown, and fork tender.

Add 1/4 cup of Teriyaki sauce.

Add 1/4 cup of  silvered almonds. (Nuts are optional…in a planet not in this Universe! Just kidding…you don’t have to add them.)

Cover and set vegetables aside.

Stir Fry Vegetables

TIP: I recommend the Ling Ling Brand of All Natural Chicken & Vegetable Pot Stickers.  The chicken is raised without antibiotics and you can purchase a large 4.2 lb bag from Costco. You can find smaller bags at your local grocery store.

In a large 12 inch skillet with a lid, add 1 tablespoons vegetable oil; coat skillet evenly. Place 15-20 potstickers in a single layer, flat-side down.  Add 1 cup of water.

Bring to a boil.

These babies are going to plump up right up…like lips on Botox!

Cooking Potstickers

Uncover, and add Shrimp. 

Cover again and leave until shrimp turn pink are no longer translucent.

Tip: Be Careful not to overcook Shrimp. They should only take 3-5 minutes to cook.

Addition of Shrimp to Potstickers

Uncover. Remove Shrimp and set aside.

Continue cooking potstickers until water has evaporated and bottoms of potstickers are lightly browned.

TIP: Do not move potstickers during cooking. Don’t move’em. I know…you want to. Don’t do it!

Once potstickers brown, flip them over.

Browned Potsticker

Add 1/4 cup of your favorite Teriyaki sauce. I like Yoshida’s. Also add one package of the Potsticker sauce that came in the bag.

It’s as simple and as easy as that! Dinner is Served!

This dish looks, and tastes, like a gourmet Chinese dish! (I’m allowed to exaggerate…just a little! The boss said it was okay. lol)

It took me 30 minutes from start to finish to make this dish!

Serving of Potsticker and Shrimp Dish



  • Not a fan of Shrimp, use chicken instead of shrimp, or leave out the meat. (I’m good with that!)
  • Not a fan of nuts…you can leave those out too! (See how easy I am!) 
  • You can use any combination of vegetables you like. That’s right! You don’t have to use squash if you’re not a fan, again..I’m easy! You could use peppers and snow peas, you could even throw mushrooms into this stir fry.
  • This is a great dish to get creative with so go Crazy!
