Shrimp Stir Fry

green beans

This one was born during one of those “I don’t feel like cooking” nights. I spotted a big bag of shrimp in the freezer and some green beans + bell peppers in the fridge. *Opens Pinterest* I found this recipe but decided to make it my own. This one is so incredibly easy + very tasty.

Shrimp Stir Fry: makes 2 servings


  • 2-3 tbsp Soy Sauce

  • 1 tsp of brown sugar (or coconut sugar)

  • 2 tbsp avocado oil

  • 20 (or so) tail off shrimp

  • 2 handfuls of green beans

  • 2 tbsp Coconut Aminos

  • 1/8 of a white onion chopped

  • 2-3 cloves of garlic chopped

  • 1 red bell pepper chopped or sliced

  • Sesame seeds (optional)

  • Salt + Pepper to taste

  • Jasmine Rice (or any similar kind of grain)


  • Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan until shimmery.

  • Add shrimp and cook for 3-4 minutes.

  • Add green beans and cook for 6-7 minutes.

  • Add onions, garlic, bell pepper and 1 tbsp of the coconut aminos and cook for 4-5 minutes. (I like to take out a green bean & bell pepper piece and try it to see if it’s ready. Or have my husband try it.)

  • Add salt + pepper to taste along with the sesame seeds.

  • Prepare bed of rice, top with remaining tbsp of coconut aminos and add the stir fry on top. Enjoy!
