Shrimp and Broccoli Stir Fry



I’m so hungry for this Shrimp and Broccoli Stir Fry, my belly thinks my throat’s been cut off.

It felt good getting that out there. I hope I didn’t hurt your ears!

Hey Hey, pals! How are YOU? Happy day, Happy Wednesday!

Lemme tell you… I swear on this pile of blog-grocery-receipts sitting next to me that life does not get busier than in the month of September. I don’t know if the Holiday Season can even amount to the month that kids go back to school, back to sports, back to life, back to reality. I’m over.it.

For that reason, dinners like Shrimp and Broccoli Stir Fry, Chicken in Foil, and One Sheet Pan Salmon have been a part of our dinner rotation, on the daily.

That’s a lie. I don’t cook dinners, daily. Every other day, maybe, but not every single day. That’s pushin’ it.

OH wait.

I do cook every day. It’s how I get to hang out with YOU! High FIVE!

Since I am pretty sure that your life looks very similar to mine – unless your kids are grown, you’ve retired, and are living at a Five Star Resort – I wanted to share my version of this ever so popular Chinese dish that is quick to make, tasty as can be, but the picky eaters won’t even think about touching it. Apparently, shrimp isn’t as popular as chicken nuggets among the 3 to 6 age group. Just an FYI.

I really want you to make this. I don’t ask for much, do I? Other than wanting you to make every single recipe I post.

I’m also looking for laughter, affirmation, and pins. Kidding! Almost… 😉

Also? I’m leaving for Denver tomorrow. That means I have to fly, which means I am terrified. Prayers, please!

ENJOY!

P.S. I want you to use fresh shrimp. Don’t look at what I used. I do things to make pretty-errr pictures, remember?

Okay, Buh Bye!

    I just made this for lunch. Simple, fast and delicious! I follow your IG account and that’s how I came upon the recipe. YUM! Thank you.

  2. I noticed that you did not put how many cups per serving plus how many calories and fat. I am watching my intake on calories. It would help me to know the calories and fat of your recipes. The shrimp and broccoli looks good but how much of the shrimp, broccoli and rice can we eat not going overboard.

    Thanks for your attention on this matter.

  3. Candi

    Can I substitute the rice vinegar for white? (I’m not a suuuuper experienced cook so I don’t know everything about different types of ingredients so that one is uncommon to me)
    Thanks and can’t wait to make this this week!

  4. Tracy

    Made this last night and it was yummy! How many servings does this recipe make? I assume it is for four and the nutritional information provided is for 1/4 of the recipe. Is that correct?

  5. Becky

    I’m making this right now! Two cups of broccoli sure doesn’t seem like much compared to a pound of shrimp! 😀 Is that the correct measurement of broccoli? (It looks like a lot more than 2 cups in the pics too!)

    1. Mary Ann Grafton

      This dish was delicious fast and easy. I used a 2lb bag of frozen peeled shrimp and 2 large heads of broccoli. I served it with steamed brown rice. Will definitely be making it again.
