You can bet that there's a whole lot of flavor in this one! Our recipe for Thai Shrimp Stir-Fry is just what you need to change up your usual dinner routine. It even features a nice crunch from a surprising ingredient - watermelon rind! We know you're going to love this one. 

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1 cup julienned carrots
  • 1 cup julienned watermelon rind (see Note)
  • 1 onion, cut in half, then cut into 1/2 moon slices
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut in half then cut into 1/2 moon slices
  • 3/4 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined, with tails removed
  • 1/4 cup Thai chili sauce

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil until hot. Add carrots, watermelon rind, onion, and yellow pepper; saute 6 to 8 minutes, or until crisp-tender.
  2. Add shrimp to skillet and saute just until shrimp turn pink. Stir in Thai chili sauce, cook until warmed through, and serve.


  • We like to serve this flavorful dish over some warm white rice. 
  • The watermelon rind is the white portion of the fruit, and it's totally edible. It's great for everything from pickling to using in soups. It has a pretty mild flavor with a crisp texture, which is why we love it in dishes like this one.
