Choose your fresh veg, cut all in approximately the same size.
Buy a pound or less of fresh shrimp depending on how many are eating
First heat your wok to rocket hot, as hot as you can go. Add about a tablespoon or two of canola oil & immediately add the veg. toss veg for a couple of minutes never ever walking away from it. Remove the veg when tender but still has a bite. Put another tablespoon or so of oil in wok & throw in shrimp, toss around until about half done & add some Soy sauce, a dash of sesame oil & I always like to add a teaspoon of hoisin sauce, use some chicken stock to loosen it a bit then throw your veg back in. If you want it to be a thicker sauce just take some corn starch mixed with water & add until consistency you want. Remove & eat.
you can also take this same procedure and sub in terriyaki sauce for soy for some flavor variety. I just made one with orange juice and asian chili paste as the sauce. the great thing about woks and stir fry is that unless you are an incredibly picky person you can usually find a sauce/meat and vegetable combo that you'll like and it is about the fastest way you could cook anything.
