A note about the Dosing on this recipe!

This recipe will have about 60 mg THC per serving IF you made your marijuana butter from average cannabis (10% THC) and used 1/2 ounce of marijuana to make 1 cup butter.  To adjust the dosage up or down for your personal needs and to reflect the strength of the marijuana you are cooking with and the amounts you used to make your butter, be sure to take my FREE 10 minute online Dosing Class that will teach you how to use the handy dosage calculator tool on this page.

Author: Cheri Sicard


  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons ginger fresh, minced
  • 1/3 cup chicken or vegetable stock
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar granulated
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons cannabis infused butter * melted
  • 4 teaspoons vegetable or canol oil divided
  • 1 pound shrimp medium, peeled
  • 2 cups asparagus fresh, cut into pieces
  • 4 ounces mushrooms white, cremini, or shitake
  • 4 green onions sliced, white and green parts


  • Whisk together garlic, ginger, stock, vinegar, oyster sauce, sesame oil, sugar, salt, pepper, and cornstarch until well combined.  Whisk in melted cannabis infused butter until well combined and mixture is emulsified.  You can alternately prepare sauce in a small food processor.  Set aside.
  • Heat a wok over high heat.  Add 2 teaspoons oil and swirl to coat wok.  Add shrimp and stir fry just until cooked, about 4 to 5 minutes.  Remove shrimp from wok and set aside. 
  • Add remaining 2 teaspoons oil to wok and swirl to coat.  Add asparagus, mushrooms, and green onions to wok and stir fry until crisp-tender, about 6 minutes. 
  •  Return shrimp to wok and stir to combine ingredients.  Stir sauce and pour over ingredients in wok.  Cook, stirring constantly, for about a minute or until sauce heats through, thickens, and evenly coats the food.  Serve immediately over rice or noodles.


** Oyster Sauce, a staple of Chinese cuisine, is a thick, dark brown sauce made from ground dried oysters. Available at Asian food markets or well stocked grocery stores, oyster sauce will keep indefinitely in your refrigerator.

    I made this without the cannabis for the family last night and it was a huge hit. I made a huge bowl of rice, added a little extra shrimp and it fed 7 people. We especially enjoyed the asparagus cooked this way. Just delicious.
