Quick Shrimp and Vegetable Stir Fry


”Delicious! Like the title, this was the perfect meal to make on a Monday evening! I hadn’t planned my weekly meals yet and saw this recipe in a Skinny Mom email and thought, “Yum”! I don’t make shrimp nearly enough, so after work I headed to the grocery store. Prep was such a breeze that my 2-year-old son even helped mix the sauce! After popping the rice and veggies in the microwave and sautéing the shrimp, dinner was served. The sauce was light and tasty and the Quick Shrimp Stir-Fry was a hit!”
