This shrimp stir-fry recipe is very easy to make.  Shrimp stir-fry is such a tasty and healthy dinner!  This shrimp stir-fry recipe uses very healthy ingredients: shrimp, bell peppers and onions.

In the picture above, I used red bell peppers in this shrimp stir-fry, and of course you can use any color bell peppers.  For the best presentation, you can use tri-color peppers – red, yellow and green – this will make your stir-fry really colorful.  For flavoring, I used minced garlic and soy sauce, so this shrimp stir-fry is Asian-style.   Such simple ingredients make a very delicious meal!

Shrimp Stir-Fry Recipe With Bell Peppers And Onions


  • 1 lb tail-off shrimp
  • 4 bell peppers, chopped
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp oil


  1. If the shrimp is frozen, thaw it under cold running water. See more info on how to defrost shrimp.
  2. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the chopped onions and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes.
  3. Add the chopped bell peppers to the onions and stir. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes.
  4. Add the shrimp to the bell peppers and onions and stir. Cook, stirring periodically, for 3 minutes, or until the shrimp is cooked through (completely opaque).
  5. Add minced garlic, soy sauce and pepper and stir for 1 minute.
  6. Taste to see if there is enough salt. If it’s not salty enough, add more soy sauce to taste.
  7. Remove the shrimp stir-fry from heat and serve.

This shrimp stir-fry is perfect served over white rice. I always have the white rice cooking in a rice cooker, so it’s ready without any work on my part :) See how to cook rice in a rice cooker. If you like shrimp stir-fries, here’s another great stir-fry – pineapple shrimp stir-fry recipe. Enjoy!
