Shrimp Stir-Fry Recipe

Publisher Photo
When I need to fix a quick meal, I frequently turn to this well-loved dish that takes only a few minutes to cook. I've also used chicken instead of shrimp with delicious results. I enjoy preparing holiday meals for my family when everyone can be together. Senior citizen activities also keep me busy.
