Stir Fried Shrimp

Here is a very quick go to meal you can make when you can't think of something new for supper.  

I usually have small frozen shrimp in the freezer and like to use it for a salad.  Try making stir fried shrimp and putting it over your favorite salad, with fried rice or Ramon noodles.  You can make an oriental salad and crush up raw Ramon noodles and then top with shrimp.  Get creative.  

I'm using dried herbs because it is winter, but if you have fresh double the amount.

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, sliced thin
2 pounds shrimp
1 tsp. dried basil
½ tsp. dried oregano
½ tsp. dried thyme.
Pinch of red pepper flakes
Salt to taste

Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add garlic and cook until fragrant and lightly browned, about 30 seconds. Add shrimp and stir-fry for about 3 to 5 minutes. Add basil, oregano and thyme and continue to stir-fry until shrimp are cooked through, curled, and pink.  If you are using fresh basil, oregano and thyme, double the amount.  Season with salt and red pepper flakes to taste. 

Super simple today.  Have a super day, be happy and may God bless you and yours.
