This 15-Minute Garlic Shrimp Stir Fry is a quick and easy recipe that is perfect for a busy weeknight. It's packed full of flavor and can be made with just a few simple ingredients.
Growing up, my family would always have stir fry nights where we would each choose our own ingredients and throw them in a wok. It was always a fun and creative way to make dinner. This recipe is a twist on those stir fry nights, but with a garlic and shrimp twist that I absolutely love.
