Shrimp and Vegetable Stir Fry with Lemon and Garlic

A light lemon and garlic sauce really enhances this shrimp and vegetable stir fry, along with crisp asparagus, zucchini, and red bell pepper.

Tender pink shrimp, bright green asparagus and zucchini, crimson bell pepper, snowy white rice — doesn’t that just make your mouth water? With a hint of lemon and garlic, this lightly seasoned stir fry is perfect for warmer months.

Don’t you just love a good stir fry? Ready in just minutes, with crisp vegetables and a zesty sauce, it always hits the spot. We often make this Chicken Stir-Fry with ginger and basil, or this easy Beef and Vegetable Stir-Fry. Another favorite with my family is Sweet and Sour Chicken Stir Fry.

At less than five hundred calories per serving (including the rice!), you can really feel good about eating this entree. We all know that vegetables are good for you, and most of us don’t eat nearly enough of them every day. Shrimp is a good source of protein and contains zinc and antioxidants that your body needs.
