I have been obsessing about getting more protein lately. So last night I thought I'd make a shrimp stir-fry. Lots of veggies + 200 grams of shrimp = delicious!
The photo shows just a small portion of the stir-fry served on a low carb spinach tortilla. I had intended on having the stir fry in a wrap but in the end decided against it. The calorie info below does not include the tortilla.
It did take some time to dice all the veggies, but it was totally worth the time. The different flavors and textures came together really well.
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/3 cup onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon ginger powder
mushrooms (100 g. diced)
zucchini (85 g. diced)
broccoli (40 g. diced)
carrots (90 g. thinly sliced)
bell pepper (140 g. diced)
1/3 cup corn kernels
200 g. shrimp
1. Heat oil in a wok
2. Add diced onion and garlic and cook for about 3 minutes
3. Add the vegetables and saute for 5-7 minutes
4. Add the ginger powder - mix well (can add a dash of water)
5. Add the shrimp and saute for another 10-15 minutes
It's as simple as that!
