Shrimp Stir Fry – Paleo

The Sauce

  • Chop 1 onion and saute it in olive oil until it is translucent.
  • Then add half of a large can of diced tomatoes or if I have a fresh tomatoes I use 3-4.
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • salt, pepper and 1 tsp of paprika
  • Simmer, covered for 15-20 minutes or until most of the liquid has cooked off.
  • Cool
  • Blend the sauce together using an immersion blender or regular blender.shrimp stir fy 1

The Shrimp and Veggies

  • 3-4 peeled & diced carrots
  • 2-3 stalks of celery
  • 1 red onion sliced
  • 1/4 of shredded green cabbage shrimp stir fy 2
1. If I have on hand, I like to also add mushrooms and zucchini.  This time I had some broccoli so I used that!  I first let the veggies saute in about 2 tsbp of olive oil.  I make sure everything is coated.  Then I add about a 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water and cover the pan.  Cooking on low and mixing occasionally  I let the veggies steam until the carrots are able to be broken up.  When they are done, I add them to a bowl so I can use the same pan to cook my shrimp.
2. I usually use 1 pound of cleaned shrimp, tails off.  I have also used sliced steak and diced chicken instead, but I prefer the shrimp. I add 1 tbsp of olive oil,juice of half of lemon and some parsley to the shrimp.  Cook until they are cooked through and bright pink, usually 2-3 minutes.
3. I then add the veggies back into the pan and mix with the shrimp.  Add your blended sauce and heat everything up together for a few minutes.
