Sweet-and-Sour Shrimp and Vegetable Stir Fry

<""""&&"""""""""""""""&""""""""""&""&""&"&&"&""&"""""&&><"">

I love sweet-and-sour sauce and when it’s served in a restaurant I always need extra.

And then extra of the extra. It just makes everything better.

The stir fry reminds me of so many popular restaurant dishes. Except with far less salt, fat, grease, and it’s more budget-friendly.

It’s a fast, easy recipe that the whole family will love and it’s ready in 20 minutes.

The stir fry is loaded with so many great textures and flavors. There’s sweet and juicy shrimp, crisp-tender sugar snap peas, broccoli, bell peppers, and carrots.

The shrimp and veggies are coated in a sweet-and-sour sauce mixture that’s perfectly sweet with just the right amount of tang. Extra sauce is great drizzled over rice.

Use the recipe as an excuse to clean out your produce drawer or pantry. There are so many vegetables that would well including mushrooms, snow peas, baby corn, bamboo shoots, or water chestnuts.

Healthy, effortless, quick and easy dinners are always welcome especially on busy weeknights.
