Stir-fry Shrimp and Vegetables

Stir-fry…………One of the most common dish we have here in my home. Usually if we wanted a quick way to eat your favorite vegetables, we go for stir-fry. Actually you can cook any vegetable you want, a combination of broccoli, carrots, beans and capsicum plus a shrimp will be heaven. Our rules at home, if we cook a veggie, it should be paired with a fried fish. So I paired this vegetable with a simple fried fish……………….Did you know that vegetables are home for many antioxidants that; firstly, help body protect from oxidant stress, diseases and cancers, and secondly, help body develop capacity to fight against these by boosting immunity……

  1. I have made it my goal to try out most of your recipes during my summer holiday 🙂 Your food always looks amazing!

  2. Pork, meatballs and chicken wings basically do it for me; I love spicy food and I have been lambasted severally for cooking overly spicy food! I can’t seem to create a perfect balance of spicy yet edible- its either too spicy or not spicy enough :(. I’m not a huge fan of fish but you make it look really good so I might be trying out some fish recipes this summer 🙂

  3. By the way, what’s this repeated concept of milk and fish? They don’t sound very good together (Pardon my narrow knowledge of food combination)
