The plethora of plant-based meat options on the market makes it easy to make crowd-pleasing recipes that are also veggie-friendly. Several companies produce plant-based shrimp that are convincing; slightly sweet with the perfect texture, they'll work wonderfully in this stir fry recipe.
Of course, if you'd rather forego the plant-based meat, you can just as easily make this recipe with tofu; just be sure to marinate it ahead of time in a favorite teriyaki sauce so that it brings the same sweetness to the dish as shrimp.
