Citrus Teriyaki Stir-Fry

This is an amazing veggie-packed, micronutrient dense stir-fry. I don’t know what the best part is, the brightly colored veggies or the citrus seared protein!

The Ingredients for this recipe can vary greatly based on what you have on hand. If you have only one or two of these veggies, and some extra veggies left over from another recipe, then toss those in too!

My favorite way to make the Citrus Teriyaki Stir Fry uses:

• 4-6 oz Chicken, Shrimp, or Tofu (substitute other meats or protein as desired)

• 1-2 Tbsp. Citrus Teriyaki Sauce (I use gluten and sesame free East West Citrus Teriyaki Glaze)

• 2-3 Carrots (chopped or shredded)

• 3-4 Baby Bella Mushrooms (sliced)

• 2/3-1 cup Broccoli Florets (broken into small bits)

• 4-7 pieces of Baby Corn (whole or chopped)

• Olive Oil (for cooking)

• Ginger Paste (to taste)

• Minced Garlic (to taste)

• Onion Powder (to taste)

• Salt & Pepper

• 1 cup of cooked rice (optional)

*Having the meat/protein precooked saves some time and uses up whatever is in the fridge!


First, if you do not have precooked meat/protein, cube the raw protein and sauté it with some olive oil and a little teriyaki sauce. Once the protein is cooked, set it in a bowl covered with tin foil to keep it warm.

Next, chop your veggies into small bite size pieces. Sauté them in a frying pan with some olive oil, on medium to med-high heat until they soften a little.

Then add in the ginger paste, minced garlic, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Keep in mind that the ginger and garlic go a long way, so you won’t need much.

Let the veggies cook until they are cooked to your desired doneness, and turn the stove burner to low.

Toss in your cooked protein and 1/2-1 tbsp. of the citrus teriyaki glaze.

Stir in the glaze so that it is not concentrated in one spot, cook for a couple more minutes on low heat. Put this stir-fry on a bed of rice or serve as is.


This is the Citrus Teriyaki Sauce I love because it is sesame and gluten free.
