I often make shrimp stir fry with frozen vegetables that are labeled “stir fry vegetables”. Those stir fry vegetables usually consist of a mix of broccoli, green beans, snow peas, carrots, mushrooms, baby corn and chestnuts, but they don’t include green peas. I added green peas to this stir fry simply because I didn’t have enough of the regular stir fry veggies, so I added some frozen peas :) The green peas tasted so good in a shrimp stir fry that now I often add them to the regular stir fry veggie mix simply because they are yummy!
Shrimp Stir Fry Recipe With Green Peas And Other Vegetables
- 1 lb frozen cooked tail-off shrimp
- 1/2 lb frozen stir-fry vegetables
- 1 cup of frozen peas
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- Thaw the shrimp under cold running water.
- Put frozen stir-fry vegetables and peas in a bowl and microwave for 4 minutes on High.
- Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat.
- Add shrimp, vegetables and peas and mix. Cook for 2 minutes.
- Add soy sauce, garlic and pepper and mix. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
- Taste to see if there is enough salt, and if it’s not salty enough, add more soy sauce to taste.
Green peas are great frozen veggies to have in your freezer, and they are great in stir-fries!
