Shrimp Stir-fry

Shrimp Stir-fry

With a bit of pre-planning, you can pull off this delicious meal in minutes. First, keep a supply of pre-cooked shrimp and chopped vegetables in your freezer. (While shrimp has a higher cholesterol content, they’re low in saturated fat, making them a healthy source of lean protein). When you’re ready to eat, warm a nonstick pan over medium heat. As the pan heats up, place shrimp in a colander and run warm water over the top to quickly defrost. At the same time, steam frozen vegetables in the microwave. Once the shrimp is thawed, place it in the pan along with the steamed veggies, a splash of soy sauce, olive oil, and garlic. Toss until well-coated and serve.
