Stir fry is the easiest dish to make, especially when you’re trying to eat healthy but don’t have the time or energy to slave away in the kitchen. The other night I made this quick and easy shrimp stir fry that was quick and delicious.
Raw shrimp (fresh or frozen)- check the package for how many shrimp are in a serving
2 cups of stir fry veggies (fresh or frozen), any kind you like
1/4 cup of low sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp of honey
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 tbsp of sesame oil
1/2 cup of brown rice
salt & pepper to taste
I bought some frozen shrimp at Trader Joe’s last week, peeled and de-veined
If you’re using frozen shrimp, defrost them under cold water for about 5 minutes. Optional: remove the tails.
While the shrimp are defrosting, start cooking the veggies by sauteing them in both the olive oil and the sesame oil (the sesame oil gives a great flavor).
As soon as the veggies are tender, add the shrimp. Cook the shrimp for 3-5 minutes stirring frequently. You will know the shrimp is finished when they turn a light pink color.Add the soy sauce and honey.
Serve with 1/2 cup of brown rice. If you must, add a little more soy sauce for some extra flavor So light and healthy!
It was the perfect meal to end my day…protein, vegetables, & whole grains.YUM!
