Stir fry dinners are BIG at our house.

Not only are stir fry recipes a great way to clean out the fridge but they get tons of good vegetables into your dinner! I know for us that’s huge, we definitely don’t get in as many veggies as we should!

How Do You Make Stir Fry?

You can make stir fry in a large skillet but a wok will work the best. There’s more surface area in a wok so your ingredients will sear better.

Start by seasoning the shrimp with salt and pepper and get them in a preheated wok or skillet until they just turn pink. About a minute or so per side just until they turn pink.

Next toss in a few handfuls of cashews..
