Garlic Shrimp Stir-Fry

This entree tastes wonderful and is pretty enough to serve to company. Most of the preparation can be done in advance. Tender shrimp, colorful sweet peppers and crunchy snow peas give it a variety of interesting textures and flavors. -Irene Lalevee, River Vale, New Jersey

    I made this for dinner tonight. It was very yummy, simple and healthy. My husband loved it. I followed the recipe without substitution except I served it over brown rice. I will definitely be making again.

    It needed more flavor for our liking. I substituted white wine for broth & added jalepeno jelly at the end. Good base recipe.

    This was simple, healthy, and tasty! My husband agrees that this one is a keeper. I took the recommendations of the above chefs and added celery (since I did not have snow peas), and water chestnuts. I also used green pepper instead of yellow. Yum!

    I didn't have snow peas on hand so I put in a can of water chestnuts and it still turned out good. This was very quick and easy to make.

    This was SOOOOO good! My entire family loved this, and they generally are hard to please. It was easy to make and quick to prepare. I always try to prep for my dinners earlier in the day, which makes the evening go much faster. Will definitely make this one of my favorites.

    I made this for dinner this evening. It was really good. I forgot to buy snow peas today, so I put green, yellow and red peppers in, a little celery. I even added a piece of ginger minced. As a condiment we added some orange marmalade, and it was yummy. I definitely will make this again. --By the way, I tried to print this so it would be easier to read the recipe, and it was blocked. How come? mamasuejean
