Sometimes it can be overwhelming to throw together a meal on a busy weeknight. Whether it’s navigating your messy pantry or trying to use fresh produce before it expires, I never seem to have it together. However, we are organizing our pantry and using our meal ingredients before they spoil. One dish that we love to make that combines all of our favorite flavors is stir fry. We can throw together vegetables and whatever protein is on hand, and we end up with a spicy shrimp stir fry that everyone loves. Here are a few tips to organize your kitchen pantry along with a simple recipe for your busy life.
Easy Shrimp Stir Fry
Need a simple dinner that is ready quick? Shrimp is my favorite to cook from frozen since it is ready in a flash. If you use frozen vegetables, you can add variety to your stir fry since everything can be prepared easily. Look for a stir fry veggie package in the freezer section. We like the package that includes carrots, peppers, and baby corn.
Saute shrimp with oil, rice vinegar, and soy sauce. Add your veggies and boil rice noodles in a separate pot. We like hoisin sauce to add a garlic flavor to our dish.
