Have you ever wanted to make dinner but you didn’t actually want to “make dinner”? That was my night tonight. I had an idea to make a stir fry, using a bag of frozen shrimp that I had thawed during the day, but I had no desire to stand by the stovetop. Enter the idea of a “roasted stir fry”. While it was a bit of a gamble, I do think it paid off in the end when we sat down to dinner. It was yummy! The best part is that it can qualify as a Starter Recipe because it’s just so darn simple. Check out the recipe for yourself!
- 1 bag frozen shrimp
- 1 bag broccoli bites
- grape tomatoes (sliced in half)
- half onion, cut in half and sliced
- a thumb of garlic (I used a tube, so it was about the size of my thumb… probably 1 clove, crushed)
- teriyaki sauce (just a small pour)
- white wine (a large splash)
- Splash of cream (totally unnecessary but looked good)
- 1 pkg 90-second brown rice
- Preheat oven at 400 degrees and cover baking sheet with foil.
- Remove shells from shrimp and put raw shrimp in a bowl. Toss in broccoli, grape tomatoes, onion, and garlic.
- Pour sauce over shrimp mixture and toss to combine.
- Pour shrimp mixture onto baking sheet and pop into oven. Cook 20-25 minutes, until shrimp are cooked.
- If you decide you want to add the splash of cream, you can add it by removing baking sheet from oven, pour cream, and toss to blend before serving.
- Cook brown rice packet as directed.
- Serve with shrimp mixture over brown rice.
To finish off our dinner, I like to add bread when I make dinner… I typically have sliced bread in the freezer, so I grab a few pieces, spray it with Pam and season with garlic salt. Feel free to play with the ingredients and create something that fits into your family’s favorites… add veggies, serve on noodles, change out some of the sauce flavors… the sky’s the limit when it comes to making dinners that everyone will like! Enjoy…
