Spicy Shrimp Stir Fry

I love shrimp! I love to create a meal around shrimp because it’s a protein that cooks extremely fast. Great for any real quick meal. Making stir fry is really simple and a great way to get in a lot of vegetables into your dish.

I made this recipe for my brother who loves shrimp and loves spicy food. You can omit the spice if you’d like and it will come out just as good. Check out this easy stir fry recipe.

Feel free to mix up the proteins too, you can use chicken or beef or anything really. Just adjust the cooking times accordingly.

Spicy Shrimp Stir Fry

Servings:2

1-1 1/2 lb large shrimp, raw, cleaned & deveined
2 cups broccoli florets, par cooked (Partially steam or blanch fresh broccoli first)
3 cups bell peppers, cut in strips (any color)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 large onion, thinly sliced
2 jalapeños, diced
1-2 T Sriracha (or any hot sauce)
2 t low sodium soy sauce
1 T olive oil
1 t chili powder
1 t onion powder
1 t garlic powder
Sprinkle salt & pepper
2 cups prepared rice

Directions: In a small bowl add sriracha, soy sauce and seasoning and mix well. Set aside. In a medium sauté pan on medium high heat add 1 T of olive oil. Add in garlic and onion and cook 2 minutes. Add in peppers and sauté 7-9 minutes mixing often. Cook to desired tenderness. Add in shrimp and cook until pink. Add in broccoli and mix well. Add in soy sauce liquid and stir. Cover and cook 3 minutes. Mix well and serve over rice.

Notes: To make this not spicy, remove the sriracha or hot sauce and the jalapeños. It’s just as good without the kick!
