Sizzlin’ Shrimp Stir Fry

Stir fry is a quick “go-to” meal to make. If you haven’t been out to the grocery store, you might even still have ingredients to make a stir fry with whatever kind of veggies and meat you have left in your fridge.

Ingredients for Shrimp Stir Fry: Makes 4-6 servings


  • 8 oz. mushrooms (one normal-sized package)
  • 1 bell pepper: color of your choosing (I like red and yellow because they are sweet)
  • 1/4 yellow onion
  • 2 green onions
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 handfuls of snow peas
  • 3 tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. sesame oil
  • Red pepper flakes to taste (for spicy lovers)
  • 1 & 1/2 lbs shrimp: I prefer the already cooked, frozen shrimp because it’s quicker, but if you prefer to buy uncooked, I suggest buying them de-veined & tails-off, you can also buy them fresh but the legs & tails are usually still attached


  1. Thaw out shrimp in a large bowl filled with cold water
  2. While shrimp is thawing…Cut up veggies: Mushrooms, pepper, onion, green onion, snow peasIMG_3343
  3. Peel garlic & remove ginger skin with a carrot peeler
  4. Saute veggies in a large nonstick saucepan w/ just enough olive oil to coat the panIMG_3344
  5. When one side of veggies are browned, grate ginger, press garlic into the pan, and add soy sauce
  6. When veggies are browned on each side, transfer to a large bowl
  7. Drain water from the shrimp bowl
  8. Transfer & saute shrimp with 1/2 tsp sesame oil until hot; or if uncooked, until pink & no longer translucent
  9. Transfer veggies back into pan, add red pepper flakes to taste & mix together

The colorful end result!

Enjoy, knowing that this is a low-carb & low-fat dish filled with enough protein, veggies, and flavor to fill you up!  It is even tasty chilled to bring for lunch the next day; I always like to have leftovers for the week.  You can create your own variation of stir fry with different meats and veggies.  Let me know how YOU change it up!
