Shrimp and Vegetable Stir Fry



We had gone camping over the weekend to Yosemite and had a wonderful time. We had our share of snow and the waterfalls were in their best form. Just beautiful. Returned home late Sunday night and was so exhausted that I spent most of yesterday sleeping and catching up with some pending work. I just checked my dashboard and I've got a lot to catch up with. I may not be able to comment on all your wonderful posts, so please excuse me. 
This stir-fry was something I made for dinner last night. Was too lazy to cook something elaborate. We had it with some salad greens and it was awesome.

Shrimp and Vegetable Stir-Fry



Ingredients:
250 gm shrimp
2 bell peppers, cut into cubes (I used one red and one yellow)
300gms broccoli, medium florets
4 scallions, white and green parts separated, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2 - 2tbs soy sauce
1tbs red chilli sauce
1tsp white pepper powder
salt to taste
1tbs oil

Method:
Clean the shrimp well. Steam the broccoli till almost cooked. It should still be crisp.
Heat oil in a wok on medium high. Add the garlic and fry for 30 secs. 
Add the chopped scallions ( whites only) and bell peppers and fry for 2mins. 
Add the shrimp and cook uncovered for 3-4mins till almost done. 
Then add the broccoli, soy sauce, red chilli sauce, pepper and salt and stir fry till well blended and dry, about 2-3 mins. Stir in the scallion greens and serve hot.
