Curry Shrimp and Broccoli Stir Fry

I always reach for easy stir-fry recipes when I have very little time to put dinner on the table. Stir fry is a perfect one-pot dish that contains protein and veggies. With white or brown rice you’ve got yourself delicious and healthy dinner in no time.

Today I am sharing my simple shrimp and broccoli stir-fry dish which is quick and easy to make and packed with flavor.

The first thing I do is marinate my shrimp to give it more flavor. While the shrimp marinates, I make a delicious sauce. No fancy ingredients, just standard Asian sauces like soy sauce, oyster sauce, and curry powder. If you don’t have these ingredients, I urge you to keep them on hand. You can make a variety of Asian dishes using those ingredients.

I like to blanch my broccoli using a microwave as this speeds up the process. You don’t need the ice bath to cool the broccoli. If you haven’t tried this process, try it as you won’t be disappointed.

You can serve this wonderful curry shrimp and broccoli stir fry over cooked rice. It’s a perfect weeknight dinner that takes less than an hour to make.

Leftover stir-fry will keep for a couple of days in the refrigerator. Make sure the stir fry cools completely before storing in the refrigerator.

I hope you give this recipe a try. If you like the recipe don’t forget to like and share with others!
