Shrimp Stir-Fry

I am always looking for quick and delicious dishes for weekday meals.  So I find that a good stir-fry is awesome!  I had some shrimp lying around and mixed together a great stir-fry that I had to share with you guys.  It has a nice spicy garlic sauce that hits all areas of your taste buds.

Shrimp Stir-fry

Peel and de-vein 1 pound of shrimp.

1 pound Shrimp

Mix the sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

The Sauce

Preheat a large fry pan or wok over high heat.

Add 3 tbs of vegetable oil to the pan.  Then add 2 cloves of garlic.

Stir the garlic around and immediately add the shrimp.  Stir continuously and cook for 1 minute or until the shrimp start to turn pink.

    I always love a good stir fry but rarely use shrimp just because I rarely find good shrimp in landlocked TN.
