Are you looking for quick and easy when it comes to dinner prep? Wondering how you can make it simple without making it boring? Looking for something that’s delicious and healthy yet doesn’t taste like cardboard?
I’ve got just the thing for you!
This Shrimp Stir-fry with Vegetables fits all those criteria. It’s fast. It’s super yummy. It’s good for you! I’m not sure what more you could ask for. Except for seconds.
I’ve made this many times over the last month and there are never any leftovers, so make sure you get your seconds if you want them. This dish will get snapped up quickly.
I enjoyed this last month as part of my Whole 30 challenge. It’s a great fit for a range of diets, including gluten-free and dairy-free. You can serve it over rice or noodles if you want to add a hearty side dish. The lemon and Herbed Seasoning Mix add just the right flavors to bring it all together.
I buy frozen shrimp when I find it on sale. I love to be able to grab it from the freezer for a quick meal. When I forget to thaw, sticking the shrimp in a bowl of cold water usually does the trick. I’ve found that there’s a fair amount of discrepancy between frozen shrimp brands. My current favorite is the one from Costco. “Quick” requires that you buy the shrimp already peeled and deveined. Don’t forget!
I love the colors in this dish, thanks to a hearty melange of vegetables. The peppers, zucchini, onions, and mushrooms cook quickly making this a quick fix. I prefer not to cook them too much. Leave them al dente so that you don’t have soggy veg.
