This stir fry has to be one of the quickest and most delicious out there. What’s the trick to making a stir fry? There is none, it’s just that easy.
One way to save yourself time and prepare a hassle free weeknight dinner or lunch is to pre-cut your veggies, like mushrooms, onions, etc., ahead of time. When you’re ready to cook, heat the oil in the skillet or wok and get out all of the veggies you need, both frozen and not, to cook.
What kind of shrimp should I use? Fresh, frozen or store-bought cooked shrimp are good to use as long as you cook it before tossing in the skillet or wok.
Should I use a wok? Generally with Asian-inspired recipes like fried rice or stir fries, a wok is used to distribute the heat evenly to all of your ingredients. However, it is not necessary to make a great stir fry! Use what you have on hand.
