This is the easiest seafood recipe to make. I use it as a GO TO meal when I am in a rush. I always have a variety of vegetables in my fridge and frozen shrimp in my freezer. I used frozen cooked shrimp when I made this dish. You could even use frozen vegetables in a pinch. This recipe is quick, easy, tasty and HEALTHY!

Recipe type: Main
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 24 Shrimp (cooked frozen, uncooked frozen or fresh)
  • 6-8 cups of a variety of vegetables. I used broccoli, red peppers, onions, cauliflower, carrots. You decide the amount of vegetables you want to serve.
  • 3 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 jar of store bought Teriyaki marinade/sauce
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Prepare Vegetables
  2. If you are using fresh vegetables, slice them up. You will want pieces that can easily be eaten from a fork. If you are using frozen vegetables pre cook them so they are almost done based on the package directions.
  3. Prepare Shrimp
  4. If you are using frozen shrimp thaw them in a bowl of cold water. Do not use warm water, it must be cold or you will begin to cook the shrimp. Continue to thaw them by replacing the cold water. Soon they will be soft to the touch and then drain and pat dry with paper towels. If you are using fresh uncooked shrimp, just make sure they are shelled and deveined. This makes them easier to eat in the stir fry.
  5. Once the shrimp are dry return to a bowl and add ½ cup of Teriyaki marinade/sauce. Set them aside to soak while cooking vegetables.
  6. Slowly heat up a large skillet. As the skillet warms add 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  7. When pan is hot add vegetables and stir fry until almost cooked through. I like my vegetables slightly crunchy.
  8. Add some fresh marinade/sauce to the vegetables to taste. Go slow with store bought marinades they can be concentrated and you want to use a little then taste. You can very quickly over season your dish. Do not use the marinade/sauce that the shrimp is soaking in.
  9. Add Shrimp to skillet. Do not add excess marinade/sauce only shrimp.
  10. If you are using pre cooked shrimp you will want to make sure your vegetables are done. This is because you DO NOT want to cook this shrimp it is already cooked. Just toss the shrimp with the vegetables for flavor and to warm them and remove from heat.
  11. If you are using uncooked frozen shrimp or fresh uncooked shrimp then add them to skillet toss with vegetables and cook for 2-4 minutes or until the shrimp becomes opaque. Check by cutting one in half. If its flesh is opaque throughout, it’s done. Shrimp cooks very quickly. Do not over cook.
  12. After shrimp is ready you can serve! This is a quick cooking meal. Do not let it sit in the hot skillet.
  13. ENJOY!
Notes
I serve this on its own since I use LOTS of vegetables, but you could serve this over rice.

    I want to make this spicy, but I am not sure how it will taste with the teriyaki sauce. Any feedback?

      Hi Sherri, was thinking about your question about how to make this spicy. You could try another type of sauce. Perhaps a ginger sauce from your market. Let me know what you try! I’d love to know. Tracy
