Healthy Shrimp Stir Fry

This is a recipe rewind of one of our favorites…

As much as we love Mexican food, we also love Asian…I especially love curries and stir fries.  I attempted to make a healthier stir fry recipe that I think turned out really well and was easy to do.  And the great thing is, you can pretty much throw in any veggies you want.

Ingredients for Healthy Shrimp Stir Fry - kale, quinoa, garlic, mushrooms, soy sauce, hot sauce, olive oil, green onions


Healthy Shrimp Stir Fry


  • 8 oz. shrimp
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups kale
  • 1 green onion
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 3 mushrooms
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tsp low sodium soy sauce
  • Hot Sauce to taste
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


First you will heat 1/2 a tbsp of oil in a skillet. Once hot, add the shrimp and cook for a few minutes. Then add the garlic and cook for an additional 2 - 3 minutes. Once cooked, remove from skillet and add to plate.

Then heat the remaining oil and add the mushrooms. Cook for about 2 - 3 minutes. Then add the kale, green onions, quinoa, and any other vegetables you want. You will also add the soy sauce, hot sauce, and 2 tsp of water.

Let this cook for a few minutes and then add the shrimp and garlic back to the skillet. Cook for an additional 5 minutes or so and serve.

I like to add a lot of garlic for more flavor…

I don’t really care for mushrooms, but someone else in my household does, so I make the sacrifice :)


I then add the kale, quinoa, green onion, low sodium soy sauce, and hot sauce to the skillet.
