I’ve started trying to watch my calories and this tasty dish naturally falls right into the low calorie category.
And it’s quick and easy! That’s a plus, right?
I fix this all the time and use whatever veggies I may have. This time I used a bag of frozen stir fry veggies and the preparation was even faster.
Spicy Shrimp Stir Fry
1 bag of Walmart frozen medium shrimp, peeled
1 bag of frozen stir fry veggies
1tsp Cajun spice
splash of soy sauce
First of all I thaw the frozen veggies, then toss in my wok skillet with about a tablespoon of oil. I toss in a little Cajun spice and soy sauce and give it a quick stir.
When the veggies are tender, I add the thawed shrimp and continue cooking about 4 minutes or until the shrimp look done. You don’t want to overcook the shrimp or they’ll be tough.
You can serve over rice for those who want it, but I usually eat it as is. Fewer calories and carbs that way. :)

Today’s icy wet weather is just perfect for cooking supper in the crock pot.
After a long hard day at work, I love coming in to the smell of a roast cooking in the crock pot and knowing that supper is almost ready.
