Shrimp Stir Fry

I always keep a bag of cooked large shrimp in the freezer. It's so easy to pull a few out, thaw quickly and add to several easy dishes: stir fries, Spanish rice, jambalaya, creole dishes etc.

Here's an easy stir fry for 2

Thaw 12 large cooked shrimp

1 red pepper cut in large dice
1 orange pepper cut in large dice
½ white onion cut in large dice
Small pkg of sliced baby bella mushrooms
Handful of fresh spinach
Some chopped cilantro
Cooking oil (canola or peanut)

¼ cup soy sauce (I use low sodium)
¼  cup white wine vinegar
1 T sesame oil
½ t minced fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
2 t red pepper flakes
2 T oyster sauce

Cooked rice (brown or white)—I used white jasmine for this dish.

Mix all the sauce ingredients and drop the thawed shrimp in to marinate for about 30 minutes.

Pour some oil in a wok and sauté the peppers, onion and mushrooms for 5 minutes or so, add the shrimp and sauce and heat through, add spinach and serve over rice.
