Stir fry is one of those dishes I can make over and over without tiring of it. With limitless options for vegetable, meat, and sauce combinations, you can never repeat the same stir fry. Or do as I do, and put the same few on repeat over and over, because: obsessive personality.

If you remember my Dairy-Free Paleo Shrimp Chowder, BBQ Shrimp and Sweet Potato Bowls, or Easy Cajun Shrimp you know my love for shrimp knows no bounds.

 

This Orange Ginger Shrimp Stir Fry is easy to throw together any night of the week for a quick and healthful meal.

Let’s get started!

How to Make Orange Ginger Shrimp Stir Fry:

Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the onion and carrots and sauté, stirring frequently, until vegetables begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the remaining vegetables and cook another 3 to 5 minutes, until they begin to soften.

Add the remaining ingredients in the order in which they appear on the ingredients list. Cook, stirring frequently, until the shrimp has cooked through and the sauce is thick, about 10 to 12 minutes. You can always add more tapioca flour if the sauce isn’t thick enough for your taste.

Taste the stir fry for flavor and add more sea salt, orange zest, ginger, or coconut aminos to taste.

Serve shrimp stir fry over cooked white rice or brown rice or choice of zucchini noodles, cauliflower rice or vegetable rice of choice. I like serving the shrimp stir fry over steamed white rice with an additional drizzle of coconut aminos.

Recipe Adaptations:

  • Swap out any of the vegetables for your favorite vegetables – cauliflower, bok choy, and even sweet potato would be good selections.
  • Use 1 full bell pepper of any color rather than ½ a red and ½ a yellow.
  • Make recipe Whole30 by omitting the honey and serving with zucchini noodles, cauliflower rice, or vegetable rice of choice.
