If you're looking for an easy dish that can feed a family, this shrimp stir fry recipe is a delicious option. It can be served over a bed of steamed rice or combined with fried rice for a little extra flavor.
This recipe can easily be adjusted to suit your family's tastes. For example, if they hate broccoli replace it with bell peppers, bok choy, or another favorite. This recipe makes six servings.
- Shrimp (if using frozen shrimp thaw before adding to the skillet)
- Onion sliced (medium)
- 16 ounces fresh mushrooms slices
- 1 large bag of frozen broccoli flowerets
- Mung bean sprouts (optional)
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce or Bragg's Liquid Amminos
- 1/4 tsp. Chinese 5 spice (this is the secret ingredient that makes the flavor pop)

One of the secrets for making this recipe taste its best is to not overcook it. You want the broccoli to retain a firm texture.

- When onion and mushrooms start to release liquid add broccoli.

How to Make Fried Rice
While this recipe tastes great the way it is, if you prefer a little more spice to your foods, you can add red pepper flakes or a teaspoon of red cock sauce to add some zip to this dish. While my family enjoys this over rice, it also works well with angel hair pasta.
