Delicious looking stir-fry! I made stir-fry every Friday through winter & spring but haven't at all this summer, need to make one soon.

I love shrimp stir fry. This recipe sounds very good.

Looking at it, I wouldn't know which to stick with the fork first, one of the snow peas or the shrimp. Or would that be a chopstick?

Lizzy said...

You are so lucky to live in a state surrounded by water. I just love all your seafood dishes...and this beauty is no exception. It looks delicious, my friend!

Jennifer said...

Love shrimp as well - this dish looks so inviting. You have a way with your photos and food styling.

Have you ever noticed the tryptophan (sp?)in shrimp makes one feel very relaxed and sometimes sleepy?

Erin said...

I have made stir fry before but my sauce did not come out looking as tasty as this. I have bookmarked-thanks for sharing-yum!

Vicki Bensinger said...

I love stir fry and this looks delicious and easy. There's always something about seeing stir fry on a plate with a heaping helping of rice below, oozing with sauce. It's so appetizing and satisfying.

Great recipe. Thanks for sharing.

I enjoy savoring your photos, Claudia. You are so fortunate to be able to enjoy shellfish. I cannot partake due to my allergy. But I vividly remember the flavors from the earlier days when i could enjoy shellfish! Hugs and xxxxx, Roz
