Easy Shrimp Stir Fry – Healthy and Ready in 20 Minutes!

Easy Shrimp Stir Fry

I love making any kind of stir fry because it is so easy, so flavorful and so customizable. I like to throw in whatever protein and veggies I have on hand and get creative with the seasonings and sauces. This Easy Shrimp Stir Fry uses fresh shrimp, broccoli, red pepper, carrots and a fantastic sauce to create a healthy yet delicious meal that is ready in just 20 minutes. This dish is great on its own, or when served with rice or noodles.

Here are some tips for making this recipe:

  • Make this recipe as spicy or as mild as you like by altering the amount of sriracha that you use. I use a couple tablespoons of sriracha in my sauce, and then I drizzle some more on top before I dig in. If you won’t particularly care for spicy food, feel free to leave it out all together.
  • The great thing about stir fry is that you can modify it using almost any meats or vegetables that you have on hand. Go ahead and throw in any other veggies that you would like. The more the merrier!
  • I like to sprinkle some sesame seeds and chopped green onion on top of this stir fry and then squeeze a little lime juice and some extra sriracha on top. If you don’t have these things on hand, or you don’t care for them, just leave them off!
