How many of you subscribe to Cooking Light? I’ve been a subscriber for about 5 years. I like knowing how many calories are in my meals and most of their recipes are pretty easy and made in a short amount of time.
When I make stir fry, shrimp is my go-to ingredient. We like the flavor it provides overall to the dish and, well, because sometimes I don’t have good luck with chicken – it is probably chef error! While this recipe called for broccoli, you could add other veggies you like – carrots, peppers, snow peas – the list is endless. Often I will add those cute baby corns (canned in the asian aisle section of your grocery store). And sometimes I buy pre-made sauce but for this recipe I used what it said – including minced ginger – aaaah, there is something about ginger that not only smells good while cooking but also provides a great flavor.
Hope you enjoy this recipe…. I still haven’t mastered the chop sticks – they are just a prop 🙂
