A quick recipe for how to make a quick and easy stir fry!

Fast Shrimp Stir Fry

This whole meal can come together in 12 minutes. It’s full of flavors and great for short notice.

Ingredients

* 1 cup frozen deveined deshelled detailed SHRIMP
* 1 tblsp oil
* 1 cup 5 minute white rice
* 1 cup water
* 1 tsp rice vinegar
* 2 tsp ground ginger
* 1 tbsp hoisin Sauce
* 2 tsp soy sauce
* 1/2 a bell pepper sliced
* 1/4 white onion sliced
* 2 tsp. garlic
* handful of frozen broccoli if you like


Method

1. In a small pot boil 1 cup of water, you can put in a boillioun cube or use chicken broth if you want to add texture, or even add bay leaves
2. Bring the water to a boil and add the rice, remove from heat, cover 5 minutes, stir to fluff
3. In another pan heat to medium high heat
4. Add oil, then Peppers, Onions, Broccoli, and garlic. Saute until starting to caramelize about 7 minutes
5. Add Shrimp, stir, cook until shrimp is opaque
6. Add hoisin, rice vinegar, and soy sauce bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer for 5 minutes until slightly reduced
7. Put the rice in a bowl and top with the the delicious delight

This is kinda similar to the way my mom makes stir fries, but we all know there’s no way to make anything as good as a mom. I hope you enjoy this and it makes your hectic life a little easier. It’s also a great idea to buy 2 of whatever vegetable you like (Onions/Peppers/Celery) Because you can buy them, and chop, slice, mince, dice, or whatever them up and freeze them. Then have an entire fresh one. The frozen ones are great in things like this stir fry, or a shrimp pasta dish I made a recipe on, and various other meals, especially soups.
