Are you a big stir fry fan? I sure am. I make stir fry for lunch at least once per week. I either cook a chicken stir fry or a shrimp stir fry. Both stir fries are quick and easy to prepare, which is great at lunchtime.

If you love shrimp and stir fry, you’ll love this shrimp stir fry. The flavoring is very simple – all you need is chicken bouillon (or chicken stock) and soy sauce.

As far as vegetables, I either buy a bag of stir fry vegetables or use what I have in my fridge such as, onions, carrots, broccoli, and mushrooms.

Here is my recipe for shrimp stir fry.

  1. This looks so good! I can imagine how good the house smells after making this. Although I only like my shrimp breaded (I know, it’s so bad!), this is something I will have to try one day.
