“I usually go out for Chinese food, but what if you don’t feel like going out? You can make this delicious stir fry at home with simple ingredients you probably already have in your pantry!

No special sauces or oils. No packets!

This is a very flexible recipe! 

Use whatever vegetables you like or happen to have.  You can use a package of frozen stir fry vegetables too.

I like to steam the vegetables in the microwave rather than sauté them in the pan.  I think it gives a lighter feel to the dish and the vegetables are not saturated in oil.

 You can use cooked shrimp too, instead of raw shrimp, it doesn’t matter!

  Double the sauce if you want more than pictured.  This amount is perfect for me, but I know some people like a lot of sauce. 

This recipe takes just UNDER 10 MINUTES all together from start to finish!

It is so good!
